The Professional Skills Programme – our own bespoke course dedicated to teaching girls the general skills they need to thrive in the workplace – has been continuing to cover a range of fascinating disciplines.

Over the past couple of weeks the girls have benefited from sessions on how to prepare for an interview and interview techniques. We were also recently joined by representatives from PriceWaterhouseCooper who talked to the girls about employability skills, CV writing and the opportunities available at both graduate and school leaver level.

Upon launching the Programme in September 2016 we became one of the first schools in the country to teach students practical skills that are vital for the workplace. These include teamworking, having the confidence to turn an idea into a business proposition, giving a business pitch, developing business plans and reading complex financial information.
