Introducing…….. PAID work experience initiative designed for Plymouth students/graduates to ..........GET INVOLVED Dear student/graduate, My name is Jenni Bradford, and I have conducted a PhD focused on how to better prepare students for their post education lives. I am now aiming to help prepare students for the competitive graduate job market that awaits them………… I have joined forces with Magical Maths, a company which provides after school clubs to primary schools in Plymouth. We are now going to run these clubs, using YOU as the workforce! The clubs run across Plymouth throughout the whole academic year (September to July). With support, you will be working in small teams to run the clubs. This will not only provide you with the opportunity to gain PAID work experience, but also excellent preparation for the world of work……………………………….. (to be discussed in more detail below!) So...what is it exactly? The Magical Maths clubs are delivered through a single, one hour session that covers a variety of educational topics in a fun and exciting way. We have a different theme each week, with some dressed up characters that will visit the schools from week to week, including a maths detective, a maths genius, the mathletes, and a mathemagician. Week one: Meet the maths detective Week two: Become a maths genius Week three: Meet the mathemagician Week four: Olympic matheletics Week five: Puzzles and Games Week six: Vote for your favourite to return This is one of our fun characters It is essential that all students gain meaningful work experience valued by employers in order to be adequately prepared for the competitive graduate job market. This is therefore an opportunity that students should not miss out on! This initiative will be beneficial for all students, regardless of your post HE aspirations i.e. this is not just for students aiming to teach! Students involved will gain a variety of skills, including: Project management, independence, initiative……. Leadership; team work; interpersonal working ability…… The ability to communicate with different populations; confidence to apply knowledge; and many more! Such skills are valued by employers in the variety of different environments that students enter into, and these skills can effectively be marketed to potential employers after university.
