National Careers Week and Careers Fair

As part of the school’s celebration of National Careers Week, students had a chance to find out about the world of training, employment and further study at the school’s Careers Fair.

The Careers Fair showcased numerous employers including Microsoft, NHS, Home Instead and The Army and course providers from across the North West, from local colleges and apprenticeship providers, to inform students about the next steps they can take into their chosen careers.

Students from all year groups enjoyed taking part in the event at the school which featured a number of stalls from a variety of employers and colleges. This provided the students with the opportunity to learn more about the various colleges and the courses offered there. The students 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.

Ms Hitchen, Careers Lead, from Saint Paul’s said: “We were looking to broaden our students’ horizons, as well as talking to potential future employers, the students were also able to discover more about the sixth form courses which are available at the colleges and learn about the skills and qualifications they would need to secure a place on these courses. ”
