SF Media took part in the Little Genius Programme at the Brunts Academy on 7th July 2017, by delivering a CV Workshop to 260 Year 6 Students.
The purpose of the CV Workshop was to educate the students on the importance of CVs in their professional careers and to help them to develop a mini CV to take with them when they move up to their secondary schools in September 2017.
The Little Genius Programme is designed to give students a meaningful and purposeful experience of the world of work through interactive workshops, which gives them the opportunity to listen to career stories and understand the skills and behaviours employers are looking for.
The programme gives the students an insight into the wide range of occupational areas required in the STEM sector and helps them to understand the importance of maths, science, literacy and numeracy qualifications in progressing in the STEM sector in their future careers.
Speaking about his participation in the event, SF Media Marketing Director Peter Scully said:
"Many of the year 6 students involved in the programme have never created their own CVs before, so it was great to work with them to develop a mini CV and to get them thinking about what they want to do when they leave school. I think the Little Genius Programme is a great way to inspire young people by opening their eyes to the career possibilities in front of them and we look forward to being involved in the programme again next year."
