young people + professional = iNSPIRATION and aspiration

Micro Careers Cafes 


These encounters are designed to offer affordable careers related learning directly to primary and secondary schools, and colleges. A spin off from our Creative Café model and funded through the East Sussex Careers Hub, they assist in developing skills and increase understanding of the practical application of learned skills within key areas of literacy, numeracy and creative arts. 

 

It is an opportunity for students to have dynamic career engagement opportunities, and gain a broadened understanding of the jobs that exist within their communities.

We ran a very successful pilot for primary careers education, which aimed to deliver innovative sessions both face to face and online within targeted primary schools to:

  • widen aspiration and increase confidence

  • challenge stereotypes

  • increase awareness of different types of jobs across a sector and/or using different skills

What's on offer?

Each Micro Café booking offers:

  • A choice from 12 x 5 minute films to introduce 12 different professionals and their individual areas of work

  • Resource sheets produced by professionals to introduce the tasks that will be used within the classroom

  • 1 x 30 minute online session or 1x 1 hour in person with a professional

You can access the introductory films for free below. The resources and online sessions are costed per professional, and it is possible to have the sessions run in a face to face environment if preferred, depending on availability. It is possible to hold these sections in person or virtually.

"After a nervous start, the Year 7 girls got right into it! They went from hiding their writing in their pockets, frightened someone would see it, to having a really open chat with each other then handing their writing over for the final poem at the end of the session. Total 180! " [Teacher]
