Map Out Your Future – 20th November 2018

Map Out Your Future

On Tuesday 20th November 2018, we will be holding our Annual Careers Fair, which your child will have the opportunity to visit during the day. The event is to be held in the New Sports Hall, next to the Sports & Fitness Centre.

Parents/Carers of students in Years 10, 11 and Post 16

The event aims to offer our Year 10, 11 and Post 16 students the opportunity to meet with representatives from various occupational areas to gain an insight into the world of work. It is designed as a taster session, so that students can visit stalls to gain as much information as possible to support them with their future career choices. The information provided on stalls include: entry into specific employment sectors, different training available and the typical work involved.

Students will also be able to speak to the College’s Careers Lead for any information/help they may require during their allocated time slot.

Parents/Carers of students in Years 7, 8 and 9

This year, the running of the day has changed and we are trying something new. The event is normally for Years 10 – Post 16. As part of the CEIAG standards, we are to include all students with regards to access to Careers. We have invited students from Years 7 and 8 to an ‘Introduction into Careers’ session. The students from Years 7 and 8 have been given a specific 15 minute time slot during the day.

Students in Year 9 have been invited to the after college session. Please note this is on a voluntary basis

ALL students have been invited to the after College session on a voluntary basis. This session is for any student who has an interest in returning to speak to the stallholders. Please note, any student in Year 10 or 11 who have been requested for Intervention will need to seek permission from the teacher first to attend the after college session.

Parent/Carers Invite

We would like to invite all parents and carers for students in ALL year groups to attend a special drop in session from 2.30pm – 3.00pm. This will give you an opportunity to meet the stall holders yourself and ask any questions you have regarding your child’s future plan.

If you are able to attend this drop in session, please contact the College by Telephone on 01977 657600 and leave a message for Mrs Ruth Simmons to confirm your attendance.

We hope to hear from you soon.
