Careers Fair

In May we held our 6th annual Careers Fair in the Arts Theatre for all of our Year 9 and some Year 10 pupils, to assist them in making informed decisions about their future in further education, training or employment.

The event featured 20 stalls representing a wide variety of employers and further education providers, from accountants, builders and photographers to sixth forms, universities and apprenticeship providers . Pupils had an hour to move around and speak to the visitors, with a pro-forma to complete that encouraged meaningful conversations.

The pupils left the event with a huge amount of further reading materials and a greater insight into their future career paths.

I loved discovering new things with the stands. For example, I enjoyed looking at the Police stand and seeing what they are capable of.  Christopher Lumby

I found out how to apply for the right apprenticeship plus the qualifications that I needed to get on it.  Cameron Turner

I thought I couldn’t do what I wanted but this has helped me see that there is a path open to me.  Leo Jessop

It was great getting to talk to people about things that you are interested in. Phoenix Bruney
