Year 9 Careers Fair

Inspirational Careers Advice for Year 9 Students.


We were delighted to welcome a host of visitors to Lifeskills lessons this week to talk to students about their careers.
The speakers came from a wide variety of industries including engineering, construction, childcare, the arts, the armed forces and many more.


By talking to students about their personal backgrounds, as well as the industries they work in, they helped students gain a greater understanding of the routes into their chosen careers, whether this be through work experience, apprenticeships or Higher Education, and gave them confidence to choose the right GCSE’s to achieve their dream jobs. Their advice also helped students understand what key skills and personal attributes they needed to be successful in the world of work and how they could develop these skills in and out of school.


Our visitors were impressed by the challenging questions our students came up with, and the maturity of the students.
One speaker said, “This is the perfect age to start thinking about careers. I hope having folks like us explain about what’s out there makes it much less daunting”

Students learnt some valuable lessons too:

“I’ve always loved photography; now I’ve realised with hard work and determination I could turn my hobby into a career”
“I learned the importance of being positive in all situations – it will make me more employable”
“I found out that languages and understanding other cultures is really important for work – especially if I want a job where I travel”

We are sure this will only be the first of our Careers Fairs.
