Stratford School's Biannual Careers Fair is a Huge Success
Stratford upon Avon School’s Careers team recently organised their biannual Careers Fair for students at the school. Local and national companies, charities and further education organisations came to talk to students from Years 10 to 13 about career choices, education pathways and qualification requirements for different professional options. The students took full advantage of the opportunity leaving with extremely useful information and in many instances opportunities for the future.
Our exhibitors got a lot out of the experience too with them commenting that they “enjoyed attending the careers fair this morning. It was so well organised and the young people were a delight to talk to” and that it was “It was great to meet so many of your students”. Companies even offered to continue working with the school to offer work experience to those students interested in their specific career path.
Sarah Miles, Stratford School’s Careers Leader said “We are so grateful to all the companies and organisations that came to support our Careers Fair, they enable us to give our students such a breadth of careers experience in one event and this can help tremendously in shaping their future educational and career choice. Once again we thank everyone who support us and we look forward to running this again in Spring of 2024”
