BBC's The Apprentice star Khadija Kalifa tells Peele students: "You're all hired!"
The Apprentice semi-finalist Khadija Kalifa started a day of ‘super-learning’ for Peele Community College students with an inspirational talk.
She reflected on her career path into business, any hurdles that she has had to find ways of overcoming and how self belief is an important part of succeeding in life.
Students were then given the opportunity to work with Khadija to create their own story board and craft a 60-second pitch for future use.
Year 7 spent some time looking at online banking fraud with NatWest. The rest of their day was spent working on scenes from the musical, ‘Annie’.
Clay flowers were made by Year 8, who worked with the art department and Year 9 looked at financial management with Finance4Kids and had an informative session with The London Institute of Banking, including looking at careers in finance and what employers are looking for. A workshop was also run by LincHigher.
Year 10 was given the chance to spend time with the University Academy Holbeach, who brought in their sixth form department to allow students to find out more about their post-16 options.
Interactive and creative sessions were led by the Corn Exchange theatre in King’s Lynn. Students were given the opportunity to learn about backstage careers and prosthetic make-up.
An interview skills session was run by Bakkavor Spalding and Mad4Life held a session on revision skills.
A spokesperson said: “All in all, it was a fun-packed day for students to experience and learn valuable life skills.”
