Careers fairs set students on right path

More than 900 students took part in this careers fair from Years 7, 10, 11, 12 and 13.

The event showcased various employment and training opportunities. Employers and further education providers were on hand to share their insights on career progression, opportunities and answer any questions.

Kate Knight, from CLF Post 16, said, “Events like these mean a lot to me. I want students to know as much as possible about careers and further education so that the choices they make are the best informed and the right outcome for students, both now and in the future.”


ABOUT 300 students at King’s Oak Academy in Kingswood attended a careers fair set up by Chemin Alam-Lloyd, the school’s programme leader for business and enterprise.

Some of the biggest names in business and industry such as Dyson and Airbus as well as the Army and the police were represented at the event.

Students from Years, 8, 10 and 11 had the chance to attend interactive workshops to find out more about options available to them.

Chemin said: “It was great to see so many students engaging with professionals from the world of work, raising their awareness of career routes and opportunities in a range of different industries and improving their employability skills.”
