Rutlish School careers provision saw two challenge days this term, for all Year 7 and Year 10 students and we have more planned during the year for other year groups.
The intended impact of these challenge days is to enhance the soft skills required for both the world of work and education, and will help students to develop their STEM skills as well as team work, communication, leadership, problem-solving, confidence, resilience, time management. All skills all employers and FE providers look for in young people.
On Friday 19 November, Year 10 were treated to the Esports Challenge set by The Inspirational Learning Group TILG. Students, focused on digital and entrepreneurial skills, whilst looking at all aspects of creating, designing and launching a new computer game concept. This challenge encouraged aspects of game design, including characterisation, game play, cyber-security and add-ons before considering how they would promote their new game to their target audience
