Employability Pathway Blog
The Employability Pathway have had quite a reflective week this week. As it’s Mental Health Awareness Week, we thought it would be a good opportunity to support this…
…and so we decided to get our students to participate in their Record of Achievement plans, but in greater detail so that they could be proud of what they had achieved in the past three years at the Learning Centre.
The students wrote their speeches and staff then went over their speeches with them, showing them all the pictures we had collected of them over the last three years.
Not only did this prompt lots of memories and discussions, it also enabled them to realise just what progress they had made in the last three years and how they had changed in so many ways.
We had students reflecting on how their behaviour had changed and how they had matured in this short time.
There was also a lot of laughs when looking back at their pictures over their time at the Learning Centre and various class discussions between students as they interacted with others.
It was good to see students participating in these activities and it did help towards supporting their self-esteem and their sense of self-worth.
It has also made them more positive towards their Record of Achievement speeches, although there are still some who are a little more reluctant to do their speeches in front of an audience.
