Running across the UK for over 10 years now, Springboard Hospitality, Food & Tourism Takeover events continue to go from strength to strength.
These innovative and highly interactive careers days involve pupils in Hospitality, Food and Tourism skills-based activities encouraging participants to think about these sectors as a career of choice. The event today, has engaged over 170 pupils from 9 schools across the Falkirk local authority.
These takeover events provide the opportunity for pupils to take part in nine different workshops aimed at finding out about the range of job roles available across the sector in both an exciting and engaging way, delivered in partnership with local employers.
DO ONE THING
Have you ever worked with education? Would you like to? It is easier than you think.
If you can give up an hour or two of your time then all we need is for you to “Do one thing!”
By getting involved you can motivate, inspire and stimulate a pupil by giving them an opportunity to benefit from your knowledge and on the job practical skills.
You can also help them develop their soft skills such as self-confidence, assertiveness, communication, inquisitiveness and creativity.
Can you make your 'one thing' a work placement?
Nationally only 27% of employers offer work placements however development of career management skills in young people at this stage is crucial.
"54% of 18 year olds in forth valley are in higher or further education"
