Build Your Ladder

This student workshop is all about futures.

It’s about helping students to develop their self-expression and reflection, understanding the skills they have and how they can make the most of them in applications and in interviews.

Using Bernie’s Book The Ladder, the workshop will take students through many of the tools and tips outlined in the book in an engaging and fun way and they also help you meet Gatsby Benchmarks 3, 4, 5 and 8 as part of your stable careers programme.

CVs are boring, there’s no doubt about it, and they’re also really difficult to complete if you don’t know who you really are or what you’re really good at. Build Your Ladder will really help with compiling the information they need for CVs, Applications and Personal Statements.

Build Your Ladder can also help you to support students with options for them if they don’t fit a ‘traditional’ career path – entrepreneurship, arts, activism or charity / third-sector aspirations.

The workshops will be delivered by Bernie or one of our expert associates and content will be tailored for all ages and Key Stages:

KS3 – for options choices and planning;

KS4 – for exam motivation and post-GCSE planning;

KS5 / 6th Form – for HE, T-Levels, Apprenticeships, Employment and Self-Employment.

The sessions can be delivered on a one-hour carousel basis or as a two hour intensive workshop…either face to face or virtually.
