At the end of November Bishop Luffa hosted its first whole school Careers Fair. Over 40 exhibitors from education, training and employment attended to talk to students about the range of options and pathways available to them. Representatives came from Further Education such as Chichester College and HSDC, top Universities such as Exeter and Bristol, and employers such as Chichester Festival Theatre, Police, Goodwood, the Army, and The Science and Technologies Facilities Council.
Students completed a Careers Fair Bingo sheet which helped them ask relevant questions to our exhibitors - a winner was drawn from each year group and received a prize from Montezuma’s. All year groups attended the fair and interacted purposefully and enthusiastically with the exhibitors. There was a real buzz in the Hall and the students got a lot out of the day. Feedback has been really positive from everyone involved with exhibitors being very impressed with the students – a selection of quotes from exhibitors:
‘You should be really proud of the children.’
‘There aren’t enough words to describe how good the kids have been.’
‘The young people were all very good and interacting with us which was great. Had some very interesting conversations’
We are always looking for organisations who can offer employer experiences to students such as work experience, employer talks, attending the careers fair - if any parents/carers work for an organisation who would like to be involved in future employer events, please contact Mrs Hopp on firstname.lastname@example.org
