On Friday 04 October we held our Annual College and Careers Fair in our School Hall.
This year we were lucky enough to have over 50 representatives from different colleges and businesses. All the local colleges were able to provide our students with advice regarding courses and possible pathways for Post 16 education, including specialist Apprenticeship providers. In addition, three Universities were present to give further advice regarding degrees and Post 18 routes.
This year we also secured the support of several local and national businesses that came in just to offer advice and information about careers in their particular field. This included NHS, Manchester Airport Group, Nat-West/RBS, ARUP, UK Fast and Marriot Hotel Group as well as a host of other Businesses. For the second Year Proseal UK came in to the school to promote their Apprenticeship Scheme, but also brought in some Packaging Machinery that students could actually see working.
All students in Year 9, 10, and 11 had an allocated time to see the Colleges/Businesses. They will now complete an evaluation about their thoughts and future plans that will help us direct our future Careers support.
