Message from Mrs Bown

 

Its really important to set ourselves goals and plan for the future. At times like this it can be hard to motivate ourselves and work towards the next step in our careers and learning journey. Below are some practical ways to keep you motivated and on top of your game when it comes to preparing for the future. Take a look and see what you can do to learn more about a career you maybe interested in or find out more about yourself and what careers would suit you. There are also online courses/activities to enhance your employability skills and make you stand out from the crowd.
