We are delighted that our annual careers fair has once again been a resounding success! 20 different businesses and education providers, covering a wide range of job sectors, joined us for the morning on the 31st January. Our Year 8, 11, 12 and 13 students all spent time speaking with the different exhibitors and engaging in the fun activities they offered. The students asked engaging questions to improve their understanding of the world of work and the breadth of the opportunities available to them in the future. Many students gained a clearer picture of the qualifications and skills that they need to gain in the years to come in order to pursue the careers that they are excited about.
We were very proud to receive unanimously positive feedback. The students benefited greatly from all they learned with many commenting that they now know what they want to do in the future and other students made contacts for employment opportunities. The employers were also very complimentary and told us that they were very impressed by our students, enjoyed building further links with the school and that they would like to come again next year!
