YEAR 12 STUDENT LEADERS SWOT UP ON LEADERSHIP SKILLS
Our Year 12 Student Leaders attended a Leadership Development Event, run by Kevin Cabra-Netherton from the Yorkshire Leadership Academy. Kevin runs a number of successful businesses in the travel and tourism industry and has previously served as an Officer in the Royal Navy. He has recently been in the national news as he has been working with refugees from Ukraine to help to match them to homes in the UK.
The Student Leaders learned about different leadership styles and situational leadership. They did a SWOT Analysis and started to develop ideas for what they would like to achieve in their roles as student leaders.
Kevin Netherton said: “It was great to work with the next generation of leaders to equip them with the foundation skills they need to thrive in the workplace. The students had a fantastic attitude and willingness to learn and came up with some exciting action plans.”
Ms Richardson, Assistant Headteacher, Sixth Form said: “This group of Year 12 student leaders were very engaged in the activities and have started to developed their own leadership plans. Their ideas include many additions and improvements to both the school and Sixth Form such as mentoring for younger year groups, quizzes, the induction for the new Year 12 students, supporting Year 6 transition, and developing more extra-curricular activities.”
Ms Mannion, Careers Leader, added: “This was a fantastic event for students to be a part of. Our students were full of confidence and great ideas and insight. It was lovely to see them thriving in such a successful face-to-face workshop. They worked “at pace” throughout which was very impressive, and is a key employability skill.”
