As part of the school’s careers curriculum, we arranged for our year 10 and 11 students to attend What Career Live & What University Live at the NEC, Birmingham.
Students had the opportunity to meet and talk to representatives from top employers and universities from across the UK and abroad, allowing them to get first-hand guidance from current apprentices and undergraduates and explore a wide range of different career and further education options.
The event also included workshops and talks in which students could seek expert careers advice and information, aligned to the Gatsby Benchmarks for Good Careers Guidance.
Students found the event very informative and were especially surprised to learn about the wide range of apprenticeships that are available to them.
To find out more about the event, as well as monthly newsletters, advice articles and vacancies, visit the event’s website at WhatCareerLive.co.uk
They also have a specific section for parents/carers at WhatCareerLive.co.uk/parents.
