I Can Be School
I Can Be brings seven and eight year-old girls into the world of work, broadening horizons and helping them to discover the breadth of opportunity around them.
Run through schools, the programme gives a selection of Year 3 girls the opportunity to research, visit and interview a wide range of female professionals in their workplaces during their working day. The programme shows girls the link between what they do at school and their own futures, adding purpose to their learning and boosting their motivation and enthusiasm at school.
Girls hear first-hand from women about the skills their jobs require and the education and training paths that can develop these. By opening girls’ eyes to what women across society can do we promote the value of self-belief and hard work, improving girls’ confidence and self-esteem, and crucially, later life chances.
I Can Be enables girls to explore jobs they otherwise may never be exposed to, building their curiosity and confidence along the way.
We are proud to provide this opportunity to girls at Millbank Academy.
