Thank you to Munya and Paul Andrews for organising a range of employers to come and work with our Year 12 students in the last week of term. The event involved an employability workshop and speed-networking where our students engaged in conversations with many different local employers. The feedback from the employers was excellent. They said our students had high aspirations for their futures, most knowing what they wanted to do.

Following the event we spoke to our Year 12 students about the benefits of taking part in the sessions. Comments included:

'It was good for giving us an idea of what careers are in the NHS' - Alice 

'It was nice to be able to speak one-to-one (with employers) and not just have a lecture.' - Lucy

'It was good how they made it about us - they were interested in what we had to say and gave good feedback about what direction we should take for a career.' - Daniel

Many thanks
