Encouraging excellence, valuing people

  Career Networking Event 2017

WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF WORK

On Tuesday 25th April 2017, our year 9 pupils had an exciting opportunity to meet, question and explore potential career options by engaging with almost 40 employers and employees from a variety of different occupations.

 

The aim of the event was to inform and inspire the pupils to think about their future in an ever changing global marketplace. Our pupils did us proud as our visitors complimented them on their maturity and politeness, as well as the interesting & thoughtful questions they asked.

 

We would like to say a massive thank you to our guests for taking time out of their busy schedules to attend the event and support our pupils. Please find links to our guests websites below.

 

“I was pleased to attend an innovative approach to getting year 9 pupils to talk to people in work, about their career choices, the jobs they do and the companies they work for.

 A very rewarding morning with some clearly motivated 13 and 14 year olds.” 

 

– Ian Hughes, Nicholls Colton Group Account Manager

"It was a pleasure to talk with such polite and informed young people. 

Their questions were interesting, varied and clearly well thought out.

I hope it was as enjoyable for them as it was for me!"
