Careers Fair for Year 9 to 13 students
Over 30 businesses and red-brick universities attended our careers fair for Year 9 to 13 students to help them explore their future options after leaving the Academy, whether they decide to go on to college, university or take an apprenticeship. Parents were also invited along after school so they could talk to the providers about their son/daughters future.
“It’s really important that our students get the chance to speak to external business people face to face so they have direct access to information about the different courses and jobs on offer. There is no other recruitment method that offers this level of direct information across a range of industries.”
Students were given a careers booklet a week prior to the careers fair to help prepare them and to plan the questions they would like to ask at the careers fair.
