Pupils from Saint Paul’s Catholic High School in Wythenshawe who will be heading out into the world of training, employment and further study had a chance to find out what is on offer at the school’s recent Careers Fair.
The Careers Fair showcased numerous employers and course providers from across the North West, from local colleges and apprenticeship providers to big employers, to inform students about the next steps they can take into their chosen careers in today’s tough economic climate.
Year 10 and 11 pupils enjoyed taking part in the event at the school. Several employers such as the Armed Services, Manchester Airport and Pets at Home and a number of sixth form colleges including Trafford College, Stockport College, Salford College of Performing Arts, Xaverian, Loreto, Manchester, Cheadle and Marple and Connell Sixth Form College visited the school.
The event featured a number of stalls from a variety of employers and colleges and a varied programme of talks was also staged with presentations covering a range of careers. This provided the pupils and their parents with the opportunity to learn more about the various colleges and the courses offered there. The pupils also had the chance to talk individually to employers and professionals representing a wide range of occupations, allowing them to ask questions about
potential career opportunities, and to listen to talks on the world of work.Sukhjeet Rai from Stockport College said: “The Careers event at St Paul's Catholic High School is always an enjoyable evening and all the students are extremely pleasant and welcoming. We hope both learners and parents found the event useful and informative, and will help learners in deciding their next step. The event was extremely busy and well organised with all students enthusiastic.”
