On November 17th, we opened our doors to a number of further education establishments and career providers from across the county. This year’s event was the biggest we’ve ever hosted, with 24 providers offering our students advice and guidance across a wide range of sectors.
The organisations in attendance included:

In total, 200 students and their families attended the event and the organisers were extremely impressed with the range of questions from our students and their inquisitive nature in wanting to find out more.
Some of the individual comments we received from providers included:
“A brilliant event! The students and parents were so engaged and the fayre was very well-organised.”
“Excellent attendance, enthusiastic pupils with lots of relevant questions.”
We would like to thank all who made this event so successful and look forward to making next year’s careers event even more successful.
