Advice and a Slice
Would you, one of your colleagues, friends or family members be willing to deliver an Advice and a Slice session? This can be within any employment sector. We are aiming to enable our students to meet professionals to inspire them so they can make the right decision when it comes to their own career path over an informal lunch.
COVID UPDATE: We now offer, face to face sessions with year group bubbles, live video links with Q and A and prerecorded videos shown on our large screen in the LRC. - If you wish to volunteer please feel free to state which of the later you would be willing to offer by completing the forms on our Employers Page
What is Advice and a Slice?
Advice and a Slice’ are a chance to meet some of our students and discuss with them your own experiences and dealings within the working world after leaving school. The event is informal in nature and we also offer free Domino’s pizza to all those in attendance. The aim of ‘Advice and a Slice’ is to give our students some ideas and knowledge about their options and future after they leave the school, and even get the chance to start to build connections to help them later.
What might be discussed?
The topics covered could be wide ranging, but primarily ‘Advice and a Slice’ will focus on your own background in terms of education and career experiences – how that has enabled you to get to the position you are in now, as well as any advice you can give to students who aspire to follow the same or a similar career pathway.
When and where do they take place?
Advice and a Slice are held during term time. They last for 40 minutes, during lunch time, which runs from 1.30 to 2.10pm. The events are advertised to students within school and targeted specifically at those who have already expressed an interest in the sector.
How can you get in touch?
