multiply career workshops

In November and December last year, we held our first Multiply workshops. Their aim was to offer insights into social care, retail, and hospitality. The goal was to both educate and empower students with practical knowledge about the day-to-day realities of working in these industries, including every-day numeracy skills.


A highlight was students were able to hear from professionals in these different sectors. The employees shared their experiences, highlighting the nuances of their respective industries and emphasising that knowledge of the current job market is important for making future career decisions. The Multiply career workshops explored local and national job trends providing students with a comprehensive overview of the opportunities available, including insights into emerging fields, in-demand skills, and the evolving landscape of the workforce.

 

financial literacy: understanding wage slips

To prepare students for the financial elements of employment, the workshops included input on decoding wage slips and understanding the complexities of taxation. Practical exercises enabled students to practice calculating their earnings accurately, empowering them to make informed financial decisions.


In addition to financial literacy, the programme emphasised the importance of numeracy skills in the workplace. From budgeting and expense tracking to interpreting data and statistics, students developed a solid foundation in numeracy that will prove invaluable in various aspects of their lives.

 

navigating career paths: the personality careers quiz

One of the most enjoyable components of the programme for students was the Personality Careers Quiz. This interactive tool helped them to identify their strengths, preferences, and potential career paths based on their personalities. Feedback from students showed that this exercise provided clarity and also sparked enthusiasm about their future options.

 

"The programme was an eye-opener! Interacting with professionals and understanding the real challenges they face made me rethink my career choices. The personality quiz was fun and surprisingly accurate—I now have a clearer direction for my future."
