A bus in the playground, CPR in the hall and inspirational delegates sharing their expertise were just some of the scenes across our school at last weeks Careers Fair. Students from years 7 to 11 attended a wonderful careers fair supported by some inspirational organisations, educators and employers from across our city.

Head of Phase Three Matthew Bisco commented; “It was a privilege to observe so many students, speculating to see themselves as future professionals; they were visibly making connections and contemplating possibilities.”

Students came away excited and enthusiastic by the delegates they had met.

“I found it very inspiring, its helping me to decide on the career that I want in the future. I was just at one of the Plymouth University booths, and its seriously made me consider getting into nursing” (Kodi)

“It was really helpful, I would quite like to go to The College of Art to study performing arts, so this was great” (Gracie)

“I am really interested in running my own business one day. I spoke to Diversity Business Incubator which was really helpful; I found out that I can do what I love and be in control of my future” (Aysha)
