Who do you want to become?, a new approach for Pre-University students

On 28th April, Mrs Catherine Burns, our University and Careers Counsellor, delivered the webinar ‘Supporting Students with Career Choices. The World is their Oyster!’, as part of online COBIS webinar series.

This was an opportunity to share her views and expertise on supporting students with careers choices at BSB Nexus, an activity which is central to our Pre-University enriched curriculum.

Mrs Burns explained: “Students of today are a generation born during times of huge global change. 65% students are likely to work in jobs that currently don’t exist. They will more likely be a portfolio CV generation, changing not simply work spaces but also careers more than previous generations. In a landscape which we struggle to define, we continue to ask ‘what do you want to do when you leave school?’, often creating anxiety, confusion and pressure. What could it look like if we were to change the approach and question to ‘who do you want to become?’.”
