Careers Carousel

The aim of the day is to provide meaningful encounters for students with Employers, Apprenticeship Providers, Colleges and Further Education. With a mix of employers and educational institutions in attendance, the Hall was full to the brim with talk of careers and future prospects.

The day started with an atmosphere of excitement and students were eager to engage with the various organisations about post 16 options. Employers were putting the finishing touches to their stalls as the first students enthusiastically lined up outside to see what awaited them. Year 9, 10 and 11 got the chance to visit multiple employers throughout their allocated time slot. Year 12 and Year 13 students were invited to attend the carousel during their lunch break. 

The buzz of career talk filled the air as students gained as much information as they could. “What qualifications do I need to be able to do this?” competed with “Is there any work experience that you think would be helpful?” Questions were answered and students absorbed the information ready to be used again in the future when planning their next steps. It was a delight to hear some of the questions they were asking and to hear the students saying they had found a career they would like to pursue when they were older.

At the end of the day when the last of the stalls were being packed away, a sense of calm descended on the Hall once again. A huge amount of information had been shared throughout the day, and it felt like it had made a real difference to some students.

Feedback from the students demonstrated the positive impact this event had on shaping their future paths. 

..."The amount of diverse jobs and options presented to me that helped me understand all my options going forward.".... (Year 11 Student)
