Minsthorpe Careers Fair 2015

Careers Fair 2015

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

On Monday 16th November 2015, we will be holding our Annual Careers Fair, which your child will have the opportunity to visit during the day.

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 Guidance Advisor and a Connexions/Prospects Careers Advisor for any information/help they may require during their allocated time slot.

We would like to invite all parents and carers for students in Years 10, 11 and Post 16 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, can you please contact Ruth Simmons at the college either by telephone or email (rsimmons@minsthorpe.cc) to confirm your attendance.
