‘Eye for Education’ Careers Days

On Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th June Grosvenor’s Form Two and Form Four year groups each spent a day participating in a Careers initiative delivered by ‘Eye for Education’ - an educational consultancy based within Northern Ireland, in the School’s William Moles Hall.

Wednesday 25th saw Form Two participate in their day-long event, which involved a number of challenges – including literacy and numeracy quizzes, building the highest tower from spaghetti and marshmallows and creating a marketing pitch. The second half of the day was spent in a Junior Apprentice programme which focused on enterprise and entrepreneurship and required the pupils to develop a business plan and develop a product.

On Thursday 26th, meanwhile, Form Four took part in their Careers day, which focused on a STEM challenge in the morning to see who could launch a rocket the furthest. Pupils were then subjected to a series of logical puzzles and, finally, a ‘Senior Apprentice Challenge’.  All teams were continuously in competition with each other and each activity was scored - at the end of both days, a number of awards were presented to the winning teams.

Many thanks to ‘Eye for Education’ for delivering these most worthwhile events, as well as Grosvenor’s Head of Careers Mrs Fiona Brown who was instrumental in organising and coordinating them. 

Both days proved highly popular amongst the pupils and the School looks forward to hosting many similar events again in the future.
