BBC visits up to ten thousand students each day in centenary school tour, as new research shows teenagers want career help. The project aims to inspire young people to achieve their career goals and help realise their ambitions.
As part of our aim to widen enrichment opportunities for all of our students, we are delighted that we have once more been successful in being selected for the BBC100 ‘share your story’ centenary celebrations. On Friday 16th September all of our students in Years 7–10 were invited to attend special assemblies throughout the day led by BBC staff. More than 2000 face-to-face storytelling and careers sessions will be delivered in over 700 school visits across the next 15 weeks. The tour will reach up to 10,000 students each day and over 400,000 teenagers by the end of the BBC’s centenary year. This opportunity complements our careers advice and guidance strategy, which was highlighted as a strength of the school during our recent Ofsted inspection, to support all of our students at Jesmond Park Academy achieve their career goals and, as it states above, realise their ambitions.
