Careers Fair

On Tuesday 22 March, we held a careers fair where a selection of universities, training providers and local businesses came together.

The event provided our Year 10 and 12 students an experience of in-person communication and an invaluable opportunity to interact with representatives of some options available to them once they leave school.

Students were able to approach a variety of stands and discuss routes into employment, higher education or training with the representatives that attended.

Our students thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity; asking great questions and gathering lots of useful information. There was the opportunity to gain work experience placements, understand university student life, access apprenticeship information and they could even try out the living space of a member of our vital supply chain. They were also able to discuss careers in the trades, the Armed Forces, the NHS and associated medical fields, as well as the engineering sector.

 

During the Fair, there was also a chance for students to win a laptop by using their problem-solving skills and digital technologies. Two students qualified to win, so Digital Kent have kindly provided two laptops as prizes.

Feedback from the providers at the Fair praised our students; both their behaviour and their confidence in their communications. They were fantastic ambassadors for the school.

We are hoping that this will be an annual event moving forwards. If your employer or business would like to be involved in events like this, please contact Mrs Boulton, our CEIAG Co-ordinator, at boultonf@ssscs.co.uk to express your interest.
