Our Annual Careers Fayre was the biggest and best yet!
All students from Year 7-13 amazed our array of exhibitors with their conduct.
Tracey Brace, an NHS sonographer stated “They are very polite and well-mannered but their questions are really insightful and articulate”.
Dr Thomas Prewitt-Wex, Outreach Manager from Oxford Brooks University added “I am amazed by their confidence and ambition, even the youngest pupils seem to have a really good grasp of Career paths and their options”
The students enjoyed a range of discussions and activities included targeted questioning, careers bingo and pathway proformas. In attendance were a range of local and larger Universities including Birmingham, Bath and Cardiff.
Other exhibitors allowed the students to access valuable information about the Local Labour markets including the mighty Wolves FC, Nationwide’s Local Branch Manager and Mrs Webb (Fun fact: Mr Webb’s Mum!) and also Lead Coach for Soccer 2000. The back-to-back interview questions were a great deal of fun!
Students were also able to access information on T Qualifications and Apprentice ships from OFSTED Outstanding and Globally ranked Company Incomm.
In addition to Colleges and Further Education providers students with more vocational plans were able to access local SEND training providers Juniper and Nova. The electricity test is always highly popular!
The Star of the Show was Millie Betteridge, a former Smestow Student who secured a fantastic Degree Apprenticeship with Eon. We could not be prouder!
