Careers Fair 2019
Careers Fair – Tuesday 5 March 2019 at 5.00 pm in the Summerlee Hall
Following on from the success of our Careers Fair in March 2018, we are delighted to inform you that we will be holding a similar event this year. Fitting in perfectly with the timing of National Careers Week, our event will take place on Tuesday 5 March 2019 starting at 5.00 pm in the Summerlee Hall.
This year, we will be targeting our pupils aged 14–18 (Fourth Year to Upper Sixth) and we hope to inspire, enthuse and motivate them to think about the employment options available to them and to make the most of their time in education.
Having listened to feedback resulting from last year's Careers Fair, we are encouraging parents/guardians to attend this year's event together with their children in order to support and assist them to think about prospective career choices. Except for Fifth Year pupils and their parents/guardians, the Careers Fair will take place in the early evening starting at 5.00 pm where pupils can attend together with their parents/guardians (please note that there will be an earlier start time of 3.30 pm for Fifth Year pupils and their parents/guardians).
The format will be similar to 2018 with a central 'Fair' where exhibitors will man stalls, however there will also be an opportunity for some professions to deliver presentations about their specific sector/field of work. As the school day finishes at 4.00 pm, pupils will be asked to remain in their form rooms where they will be provided with refreshments. As 5.00 pm approaches, they will be taken to the Summerlee Hall where they will be joined by their parents/guardians in readiness for the Headmaster's Opening Address.
We have over 40 exhibitors committed to attend this event from a wide range of professions, local businesses, public sector organisations and universities. This is expected to be our biggest and most comprehensive Careers Fair to date. We encourage all our Fourth Year to Upper Sixth pupils and their parents/guardians to attend this event, have some fun and investigate the art of the possible.
