Celebrating The Class of 2009 - (5) Impressing Employers

Sixth Form Careers

As students from our Class of 2009 contemplate public examinations and life beyond Bablake, it is very clear that their skills will certainly impress future employers.

Our daily news reports are quick to celebrate the achievements of our students whose broad range of skills are impossible to ignore. We have congratulated Class of 2009 pupils for their leadership skills shown in roles such as House or sports captains. Their team skills have also been very evident in the work of those pupils who have benefited from taking part in our Engineering Education Scheme and Formula 1 In Schools teams or Drama productions.

Head of Careers Mr Mark Woodward added: "Networking skills will obviously be so important for the Class of 2009 and it is very refreshing to see members of the year group, like Adam Keir, already set up excellent LinkedIn profiles. It has been a privilege to work with this year group in a number of areas and employers are in for a treat when they meet them. 

Bablake students manage such an active timetable. None more so than my 2014-15 Wheatleyan editor Kirat Johal, who was an exceptional magazine editor, highly rated by our Drama department for her Front of House work in 'Sherlock' and other productions, a key member of the Year Book committee, and an invaluable photographer for a series of projects either for her year group (such as the Crystal Ball) or in general for Deputy Head (Pastoral) Mrs Gill Press."

As the Class of 2009 prepares to leave Bablake, we wish every student the very best and look forward to hearing about their future achievements.
