Last week thirteen local employers kindly gave their time to come into school to take part in a careers speed networking activity. The purpose of this interactive event was to allow pupils to explore some of the diverse businesses in the local area and find out more about the many different entry routes available to them.

The fun activity organised by the Head of Careers Mrs. Powell and held in the Main Hall saw pupils in Years 8 and 9 asking questions to the different employers as well as the qualifications and skills they would need to gain to work within them.  During the activity, pupils also enjoyed asking questions to the employers about their own career journeys since leaving school.

The event was a huge success and it was fantastic that our pupils got to meet so many employers face-to-face.

We would like to say a big thank you to all of the employers who attended and we look forward to working more with them in the future.
