Woodkirk Academy invited a large number of local specialists to give our Yr11 students talks / presentations about their line of work. In addition, we held a careers fair which allowed Yr11 students the opportunity to have open discussions about their desired future ambitions.
A piece of feedback from the Business Development Advisor at 'Appris'?
"As part of my role I spend around 60 days within schools speaking to students about apprenticeship opportunities. Therefore, I must tell you that Woodkirk Academy has been one of the biggest highlights of my year on this circuit. Your students are very mature and all seemed to be prepared about speaking to employers / colleges / training providers. I enjoyed the time spent speaking with these young people and our organisation will be proud to support them in any we can. I can only thank you and your lovely colleagues who made the event a resounding success and an absolute pleasure to be at. I hope we get more invites!"
