Careers Conference 15 March 2024

26 February 2024

I am delighted to invite you to come along to our Careers Conference on Friday 15 March 2024. This is the second Careers Conference we have organised and this year the focus is on ‘Skills for the Future’. Whilst we work endlessly to support our students to reach their academic potential, we also aim to develop the skills they are going to need to go out into the world of work. In the afternoon all students in year 10 and 12 will be taking part in mock interviews with the organisations at the Careers Conference
