          Guest Speaker Programme & Careers Fair

          Guest Speaker Programme

          To kick off our Careers Month, on 1st July 2019 we will once again be running our Guest Speaker programme for all Year 10 students. Over 50 visiting speakers from an array of professions will each offer two 1 hour sessions. Students can specify the two talks they wish to attend.

          These focussed talks enable our students to gain valuable knowledge of sectors they are interested in. Confirmed speakers for this event so far include industry professionals from:

          IT; Engineering; the Military; Law; NHS; Sales; Finance; and Childcare

          This is a fantastic opportunity for our Year 10 students and support will be given to students as required to assist them in selecting the most beneficial talks to attend.

          Careers Fair

          Our annual Careers Fair was held on 19th October 2018 and once again proved to be a resounding success for exhibitors and students alike. Students gained valuable information regarding possible future careers and impressed the exhibitors with their enthusiasm and maturity.

          Local exhibitors included Kaleidoscope Nurseries, Calder Vets and Asda.  A number of universities including the University of Huddersfield and York St. John University also attended.

          Planning is already underway for our next fair in 2019.
