Careers Fair 2019

Many thanks to all the parents, students and representatives who attended our Careers Fair on Tuesday 5 February 2019.  

This was a hugely successful event with the largest number and most diverse range of delegates ever to attend from local, national and international businesses. We also had representatives from apprenticeship providers, universities, and colleges. Also, for the first time ever, this event was open to all the secondary schools within Maiden Erlegh Trust, providing an potential audience of over 2500 students across 3 schools.

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.

“It was a great experience and made me have a bit more of an idea of what to do in the future.”

“I think it was very interesting because I saw there are more careers that I am interested in.”

“Very interesting, lots of different opportunities and very friendly people.”

“Very informative and I can now decide what subjects to choose.”

“Excellent insight into future opportunities and what I need to think about now in order to get there."
