Dear Julia, Gaia Innovation and Business Associates
We wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the time and support you all committed in providing an amazing inspirational careers day for the Year 9 students at The Buckingham School last week. The energy on the day was brilliant- the students were engaged and inspired by your career stories and the range of activities on offer to them. The teachers and colleagues were in awe at the scale of the event and were impressed with the professional feel the students experienced throughout the day. Several parents have been in contact with the school to express their thanks and recalled deep and insightful conversations they have had at home with their children about the day.
The school has never hosted a day with such ambition; the scale the of the event and inspiration of the personalised career stories has resonated deeply with many students. The multitude of activities on offer was brilliant- it kept them on their toes and thinking all day about the future career possibilities but also a greater awareness of the world of work and how they will need to adapt to employment. There was always something happening, something going on that students were moving on to throughout the day. The cars for some of them was a highlight of the day, the Enterprise activity was thoroughly enjoyable. The guest speakers and speed networking- was a great personal touch to our students. Speaking with people from a variety of careers really got some of our students thinking about where their interests lie and where it could take them.
Thank you, I can see the impact of such a well organised and exciting day. The students and staff at The Buckingham School cannot thank you enough for the opportunity.
