KSA hold first ever Careers Fair
To bring our ‘Careers’ term to an end, we held our first ever careers fair on Friday which provided a wonderful opportunity for our students to explore their options beyond school.
Students from Years 7-13 visited the careers fair throughout the day to talk first hand to professionals working in a range of industries including the emergency services, the army, engineering, nurseries, vets, hospitality, sports and many more.
Representatives from local colleges, universities were on hand to talk to students to help them find out more about the courses they offer and grade entry requirements.
Year 11 students also took part in a variety of workshops led by professionals from industries such as hospitality, medical, games design, accountancy, law, criminology and forensic science.
Assistant Vice Principal Jane Watson said: ‘The day has been a wonderful success. I’ve received great feedback from the students who now have a clearer understanding of what options they need to take for certain careers or have gained a better understanding of the grades they need for the course they want to take part in beyond school.
‘Thank you to all the companies that came to support the day and led workshops with our students. I hope this will be the first of many careers fair to be held at KSA.’
