In October, we were delighted to bring back our popular Careers Fair. Having resorted to a virtual platform during the pandemic, we were pleased to get things back to normal, with our annual event welcoming a large array of providers. All of our pupils met and spoke to a range of education and training providers, both local and national, with employers such as Collins Aerospace, HMRC, West Midlands Police, the RAF and the Army; many local colleges; numerous training providers offering apprenticeships and traineeships; and a large collection of universities from all over the country. Pupils were able to see the many options available to them after Year 11 or 13.
During the day, pupils also joined virtual breakout sessions in classrooms, with topics covering how to choose university courses, advice on choosing GCSE options and University vs Apprenticeships.
It was wonderful to allow our pupils to once again have the opportunity to meet these provers face to face and ask all the crucial questions they have about their futures.
