Justin N in Year 11 has had the privilege to write a blog for the children’s commissioner page after their trip about the future of education:
" Since young people can build and construct their futures from a young age when they have time to develop abilities, I believe it is beneficial for them to have support with their future occupations.
I believe that schools should promote more clubs and extracurricular programmes that are centred on future careers that young people desire to enter and learn more about as they view it as a possible career path for them. In order to provide young people a better sense of their potential careers, they can also offer workshops of their choosing. If put in place, students now have greater choice of occupation since they can choose the careers they want to learn more about and gain experience for the jobs they desire in the future.
Youth clubs may host events or activities that are career-focused and invite professionals in a particular field to speak to young people about professions. For young people to explore employment alternatives, businesses should also host open days and give a tour of the company to young people and an overview of the industry it represents (finance, economics, law, etc.). In general, more possibilities for young people to be helped with their future occupations should be in place because it offers them a head start and advantage to that dream job they want to pursue in the future.
