Term 1 saw the beginning of the careers interviews with more than 40 students having had a 1 -1 interview with a careers professional in the first term. This opportunity ensures that all year 11s have impartial advice and guidance when planning their academic and vocational futures.
In addition to this, the careers fair was held on 24th October. This was open to all students but particularly year 9, 10 and 11. Students and parents had the opportunity to speak to professionals from a variety of businesses and educational establishments. This was particularly beneficial to the year 9 students who will be making their subject choices in January.
Finally, it was announced that all year 10 students will be given the opportunity to embark on a work experience placement from 18th – 22nd May.
