In-School Events

This is an over view of the type of Skillstree events you can support as a Skillstree Ambassador. These events take place in-schools across Hampshire and the surrounding areas. 

Speed Networking
About: Student(s) will ask you questions about your job, company and industry. Students will be rotate round the room every 15minutes. This gives students an understanding of different work places as well as build their employability skills e.g. confidence and communication skills.

Mock Interviews
About: You will be interviewing students. We will give you a list of questions at the beginning of the event about competencies, interests etc. You can also prepare your own questions if you want to. At the end give students feedback on their communication skills, body language etc. Students will rotate throughout the day.

Interview Preparation
About: You will deliver and run an interactive workshop on Body Language, Interview Questions, Interview Scenarios or CV’s. The details of the workshop will be sent to you prior to the event and the physical resources will be provided on the day. You can volunteer with someone to run the workshop, if you’d prefer.

Guess My Job
About: Primary School Children guess your job by asking ‘yes’ and ‘no’ questions. You will be given ‘yes’ and ‘no’ cards to hold up on the day and can bring in props to help them guess your job. They will be in small groups and will rotate around the room.

Mentoring
About: Mentoring is a unique opportunity to support a young person during term-term for an hour a week to help them with their next steps. It's sounds simple but often young people may not have the support at home or lack confidence. Having someone (and you may be the only person) taking the time to ask them 'How are you?' 'How has your week been?' 'How was School?' and taking the time to listen, support and believe in them can have a huge impact in them engaging in their school work and steering them to focus on their future career.

Training is provided by EBP South. Mentoring opportunities are available at a range of schools across the South Coast.
