KES Careers Week and KES Exhi­bi­tion Fair

A suc­cess­ful week from 7th-​11th March 2022 with a range of Career-​related activ­i­ties tak­ing place. Our Year 7 stu­dents enjoyed access­ing the online vir­tual Careers Fair plat­form in their PPS lessons. On Wednes­day we held our annual Exhi­bi­tion Fair in the hall/​quad where over 40 stands rep­re­sented busi­nesses and higher edu­ca­tion providers. Stu­dents from Year 8 to 13 spent an hour explor­ing the dif­fer­ent career and edu­ca­tion providers, many very infor­ma­tive con­ver­sa­tions were had and stu­dents engaged so well, mak­ing use of the oppor­tu­ni­ties to speak to pro­fes­sion­als from many dif­fer­ent industries.
