Student Working

Our very own Careers Week

November 8, 2019

We hosted our annual Careers Week this week, during which curriculum areas delivered careers-related lessons to all year groups, in order to raise students’ aspirations and awareness of what their subjects can help them to progress to in the future.

The highlight of the week was yesterday’s Careers Convention, featuring over 50 (!!) local and national employers, training and apprenticeship providers, colleges, NHS, Police, Fire Service, Armed Forces and universities available to talk to students about careers and their entrance routes.

Our Employment & Progression Manager, Mr Green, said “This annual event is always a fantastic opportunity for students to delve into a variety of career paths, to ask questions and explore their future options. We are very grateful to the volunteers from a range of career backgrounds, without whom this wouldn’t have been possible.”

Year 8’s Liam Grundy said “I think this event is a brilliant opportunity for us to see what career options are out there, to help us to decide what path we might want to take. Having an idea early in our secondary education helps us to plan for the future, thinking about what subjects to take to get to where we want to be.”
