Year 12 - BTEC - Careers Fair

The BTEC business students organised a careers evening for the year 11 students to enable them to challenge their thinking about possible careers.  The theme of the evening was ‘Discovering the Unknown’ so that students could learn from professionals with jobs they may never have heard of or considered.  The BTEC students invited 21 speakers onto campus and worked with Cuisine Lab (a charity working with refugee chefs) to provide catering. The feedback from both students and guests has been very positive with one student saying, “the most important thing I learned is that passion, curiosity and hard work are key ingredients to happiness in work,’ and another, ‘there are so many jobs that I have never heard of!’  We thank all the volunteer speakers, student helpers, service technique and the year 12 BTEC students for supporting this successful and informative event.
