The Hurst Community College
At the recent Skillstree Awards, we are very proud to announce that we won the School's Award in recognition of the success of our careers programme. We arrange a full week of careers related activities for our Yr 10 students to help prepare them for the world of work and to highlight the skills employers are looking for in applicants. The week includes workshops, a small business challenge, communication and team building skills, a careers fair and a mock interview day. This week has proved to provide students with essential skills for the future, thus increasing their confidence. The Mayor of Basingstoke attended the evening which celebrated the time and commitment businesses, schools and colleges invest in projects that support young people's preparation for adult life and work.
