On Thursday 15th March 2018 our annual Careers Fair was our biggest and best so far and just keeps getting bigger and better every year.
We had over 70 professionals from various fields talking to students and parents from Year 8 to Year 13. There was information available on apprenticeships, from training providers as well as employers and a presentation from Mark Austen of Reed recruitment on the Future Workplace.
Professionals contributing to the fair included parents, former students and volunteers from business and employers who have supported us through work experience.
We would like to thank them all for giving up their time to share their expert knowledge in their fields.
In response to the huge succes of the 2018 fair, one of our employers' commented:
As a mum to a daughter in Year 4 the event was of personal as well as professional interest to me. The girls I met were a real credit to the school without exception. They were all polite, enthusiastic and engaged and I was asked some intelligent questions about a career that many of them had never heard of before. In fact the conversations were varied, from a 12 year old girl who is considering being a primary school teacher to a sixth former (I think) who has not only decided that she wanted to be a Doctor but has already mapped out that she wants to specialize in Gynaecology and work in developing countries where she can be of more help - what focus and determination.
The pupil who made the chocolate brownies also deserves an A* in Food Tech, they were so delicious I was tempted to see if I could take some home with me.
We would happily attend another event when you hold it.
