On PD Day 1, students in Year 8 had the opportunity to exercise their linguistic and business skills in a day of enterprise and language tasks. Our aim was to motivate and enthuse our Year 8 linguists, young people who could one day play a part in Britain’s business future.
The objective for the day was to open our students’ minds to the world of work beyond the United Kingdom and how languages are integral to future success.
Students answered quizzes, watched videos about polyglots, were entertained by outside speakers from The University of Portsmouth and “AirBus” and completed posters and dramas to advertise multi-lingual jobs worldwide.
The day was a real success with students realising how important languages are in our modern world of work.
