On Tuesday 12th March, the College hosted their Annual Careers Fair in the Butler Hall. We are extremely grateful to our parents, alumni and employers that gave up their time to support us at this event, some coming a long way to exhibit. During the afternoon, we hosted a series of talks on a range of careers including how to become a Forensic Scientist, careers within the NHS and different roles and careers within the Financial Services and Wealth Management sectors. The Rhetoric students signed up to their preferred session and asked some good questions, highlighting their innate inquisitiveness and thirst for finding out more about their possible career next steps.

At the Fair, the exhibitors shared their expert knowledge & advice, and it was great to see so many of our students making the most of this career opportunity.  A brochure was also created for the students to assist them around the event; it included a floorplan, possible questions to ask and how to set up a Linked in Profile. Exhibitors handed out leaflets and other marketing material which will allow the students a chance to reflect on their conversations at another time. Syntax and Poetry students were also able to attend and we were pleased that so many students made the most of this opportunity. Throughout the whole afternoon, the exhibitors found the students conducted themselves maturely and confidently and were a pleasure to speak to.  A great event all round!
