CAreers Fair - Tuesday 4 February 2020

Many thanks to all the parents, students and representatives who attended our Careers Fair on Tuesday 4 February 2020.  

This was another hugely successful event, with many familiar faces and a few new ones also. We were able to invite a variety of delegates from local, national and international businesses. We also had representatives from apprenticeship providers, universities, and colleges. Even more students were able to join us this year, from across the three secondary schools within the Trust, with a possible audience of 2500 students from Years 7 to 13.

The Careers Fair helps all our students to focus on the world of work, to begin to develop their ideas about employment and to make important choices about their futures. Year 10 and Year 11 students are planning for entry to Maiden Erlegh Sixth Form or alternative routes; Sixth Formers are preparing for further studies at university or elsewhere, or for training or employment. The Careers Fair can help in speaking to industry experts and exploring the opportunities available to them so that they take control of their own career destinations.

 

Some feedback from the event are below.
