Day 2 – Career Explorer


Day 2 – Career Explorer

Welcome back! Now that we’ve explored useful ways of preparing for your work experience placements and looking after your health and well-being, it’s time to get into the nuts and bolts!

Today, you have the option of exploring 6 different careers within Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council (RCTCBC). RCTCBC employs over 10,000 people and is one of the largest employers across South Wales with thousands of different jobs roles available. The roles range from volunteer and traineeship roles to our award-winning apprenticeship and graduate schemes to senior management and director roles!

The 6 roles you will have available today have been explained to you by members of staff who have volunteered their time to give you an insight into what they do. The videos have all been filmed on smartphones without any fancy editing software!

At the end of this programme, we will be asking for your feedback about what careers you’d like to see included in our future virtual work experience weeks. Please support us to improve this programme for future students.
If you need support with any of the activities throughout this week or if you’d like further information on work experience then please email

    I watched the nursing video. It was ice to understand the challenges and the fun that is included in the job. It was also interesting to know, how many GCSE and A levels I would need.

    Hi Shakira,

    Nursing is such an important career and has had a lot of press with the recent pandemic. Lots of people don’t realise that nursing can look very different within different settings, so hopefully Josiane gave you an insight into how life looks as an Occupational Health Nurse.

    Very pleased that you found it interesting!

    Good luck!
