Our Year 9 Aspirations Event, Year 10 Work Experience Programme, Year 11 Mock Interview Day and the annual Careers Fair are all very popular with students.
They are an excellent way to talk and meet with employers, employees and representatives from a wide range of universities and colleges and student feedback tells us these events contribute to raising student’s aspirations and ambitions.
Mock Interview Day is held every year and is an opportunity for Year 11 students to meet local, national and international employers and gain experience of what it is like to experience a job interview. During the day, students also complete their CV’s and research the pathways available to them with many using the day to make informed decisions about their next steps. Student and employer feedback is always overwhelmingly positive with students each year being offered jobs, apprenticeships or places on courses as a direct result.
Our popular whole school Careers Fair introduces students to a range of career areas, extending and opening the students’ eyes to careers they might not have thought of previously. 50+ Further Education, Higher Education, training providers and employers attend and set up stands for students to visit and learn more about what is on offer to them.
