Careers Fair 2022
We hosted our first annual careers fair on Thursday 27th January since the outbreak of the pandemic. It was great to welcome back so many of our regular exhibitors including both local and national universities. Queens University flew over from Belfast in order to attend, which was massively appreciated by our students, some of whom are very interested in applying for courses there.
Both the armed and emergency services were also represented along with apprenticeship and traineeship providers and FE colleges. Students from Y9 and 6th form attended during the school day with Y10 and 11 students along with their parents attending at the end of the school day.
Pippa from Montebello had the following to say:
Just an email to say thank you for a lovely careers event this afternoon. The pupils were all lovely - so well-mannered and helpful. We look forward to seeing you next time
Our students and parents found the event engaging and informative.
The stall I found most interesting was the one that told me about T Levels.
The wide range of university stalls were really helpful.
The Careers Connect lady gave my daughter great advice about her future career plans including A level choices, apprenticeships and university admissions.
My daughter learnt a lot about the range of apprenticeship and traineeships available
