From November 25 to November 29, all Year 10 students have been completing their Careers Research Project (CRP).
The CRP involves students spending a few days in companies around Kuala Lumpur, finding out more about the world of work in the hope that it might give them some insight into their own future subject selection choices and eventual career paths.
AISM has been running the CRP for 13 years now; it is always a great pleasure to spend the week visiting the students on their placements. We had students work out over 20 different companies around KL and beyond.
This year we had students working in hospitality, IT, law, architecture, media and retail to name but a few. The project concluded on 2 December with a full day careers workshop back at school that was designed to allow students to reflect on their experiences and to identify personal strengths and skills that might assist them in their research and preparation for the future.
As always, I would like to thank the family and friends of Year 10 who gave so much of their time in assisting students with these placements. Without the continued support of the AISM community, the Careers Research Project would not be possible.
