The HCN work in partnership with the national careers charity Career Ready and we are extremely proud to be the flagship provider of their programme. Every year, Career Ready invite all students participating in the programme across the UK to a ‘Capital Experience’ day. On Thursday 7th December, all 45 of our Year 12 HCN cohort joined thousands of other students at the Dominion Theatre for a morning of motivational talks from a variety of inspirational people. The highlight of the morning was Action Jackson leading all the students on a Career Ready rap: “I’m career ready, you’re career ready, we’re career ready. LET’S GO!”
In the afternoon the HCN Year 12 Cohort split into their different themes to go on workplace visits. The Arts & Media students visited PR firm Fleishman Hillard Fishburn, the Business and Finance students visited Arsenal FC and the STEM students visited Ramboll UK. Each group gained an insight into what it means to work in that particular sector, as well as having opportunities to network with industry professionals and fellow Career Ready students from across the country.
Many thanks to Career Ready for organising such as successful day.
