Futures Friday Update
Year 9 – Helen Bartlett our CSW Careers Development Consultant delivered an assembly to Year 9 students on the importance of skills alongside qualifications. At a time when students are making GCSE choices, this assembly was very timely and demonstrated how extra-curricular activities can add value to a student’s CV, preparing them with the right employability skills for their futures.
Year 10 – City College Plymouth spoke to Year 10 students about their Further Education offer and the importance of working hard to achieve the necessary grades to progress onto the various pathways available to students beyond Year 11 either here at Eggbuckland Community College or elsewhere.

Details of how to register are below and we encourage students to look at this website with their families to ensure they make the best, informed decisions for their chosen pathways:
