Year 11 Careers Fair and Workshops

On Tuesday we welcomed 41 employers and providers of further education for what is our largest internally held careers event of the year.

Year 11 were off timetable for periods 1-4 so they could attend a series of workshops and interact with our visitors who had erected stands in the Adshead Hall.

Workshops from Get into Teaching and Trafford Social Care gave students much to think about, while presentations about our own Sixth Form and from The Manchester College explored every available post-16 pathway from A Levels to T Levels, from Diplomas to Apprenticeships.

Students also enjoyed an hour chatting with our visiting employers. Rolls Royce, NHS and the Armed Forces were joined by KPMG, Barclays, EY and many more. It was great to see horizons being widened, and especially valuable for many of our Sixth Formers who are considering degree apprenticeships to be able to make direct contact with relevant companies.

All students also signed up to the Unifrog careers platform during the course of the day. This offers unbiased careers advice and a plethora of features which are invaluable to students considering their next steps.
