Sixty fourteen year olds from schools in Tulse Hill and Norwood have been exploring their city as part of our Futures careers inspiration programme for Opportunity Lambeth. They especially loved using tube and trains to navigate to employment destinations like Canary Wharf, More London, ITV and the City on our Orienteering Day.
This term, they are learning presentation and interviewing skills and developing their “story of me” so they can network confidently with professionals to explore potential careers.
One students told us “I’ve enjoyed being part of We Rise Futures because it has opened up a part of my brain I didn’t know I had. It’s helped me to be a better me”. Another said “It has helped me think about other things I might be open to, other things I could do”.
