Careers Fair: Thursday 23rd FebruaryBack to Latest News
To link with National Careers and Apprenticeships Weeks and Year 9 Options, we will be holding our annual Careers Fair on Thursday 23rd February from 6.00pm to 8.00pm and we are looking forward to welcoming lots of students and parents from Years 9-13.
To reduce crowds and waiting times we would like to invite students to attend a time slot based on their year group:
6:00pm – 7:00pm – Years 10, 12 and 13
7:00pm – 8:00pm – Years 9 and 11
There will be a wide range of exhibitors from different sectors so students can explore a broad range of possible careers and education paths.
Year 9 will be able to use the Fair as their first of three events designed to help them make informed decisions when selecting their options. The Fair will provide an invaluable opportunity for students to both explore new career paths, as well as a chance to talk to employers about the skills needed for that career.
Year 10 - 13 students will be able to speak to representatives from Universities, Sixth Forms and Colleges, Apprenticeship Training Providers, Professions and Employers. Directions’ Career Advisers will be available to give independent careers advice and guidance. As you will be aware, all Year 11 school leavers now are required to stay in education or training until they are 18.
Sixth Form students also have many more options to consider after A Levels or BTEC qualifications so it is more important than ever that they find out all they can about the opportunities open to them to help them make informed choices about their future.
We would encourage all Year 9 - 13 students and parents to attend, even if you have been before. It is a great opportunity to find out about the many and varied opportunities out there and your child may even find their future career!
Whilst it is not a requirement, in order to make a good impression we recommend school uniform or smart attire should be worn.
