The goal of the Cardiff Commitment is to ensure that all young people in Cardiff eventually secure a job that enables them to reach their full potential, whilst contributing to the economic growth of the city. The Cardiff Commitment supports the vision that the public, private and third sectors will work in partnership, with schools and education providers, to connect children and young people to the vast range of opportunities available in the world of work. The team have asked us to share the following communication:
‘Open Your Eyes Week’ is a careers event held in a number of primary schools in Cardiff, involving speakers from a wide range of employers, designed to inspire and ignite interest in different occupations.
Further to the success of Open Your Eyes Week 2017 we are now starting to plan for 2018. We are delighted to not only be working with the Fitzalan Cluster primary schools again but we are now planning the same week for the new Cardiff West Community High School and it’s 6 cluster primary schools in Ely and Caerau. Please find below the YouTube link to OYEW 2017:
To ensure both clusters can maximise on the opportunity to hear from a wide range of employers, we are inviting organisations to ask colleagues from different departments to get involved in the week, sharing the school visits, sharing insights into different roles within the organisation to the pupils and being given the opportunity to visit schools in both clusters. It would be fantastic opportunity not only for the organisation but for your staff.
If you would like to be involved this year, please can you let me know which days your organisation can speak at the schools by filling in the below table? We ask if organisations can speak at a minimum of 2 schools– all schools are close in proximity and estimated time out of the office will be 11am – 2.30pm.
