This year we held our first ever careers fair at the Academy. The event provided students with a wonderful opportunity to explore options beyond school.
Students from Years 7 to 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 and universities were on hand to help students 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.
Here are just some of the companies, services and education establishments that attended our Careers Fair:
'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 who 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.'
