Meet employers, universities & more at our upcoming careers fair

3rd October, 2018

If you are a Year 10, Year 11, Year 12 or Year 13 student at Skinners’ Academy (or a parent / carer of one of these pupils), we are pleased to invite you to our Careers Fair here at Skinners’ Academy on Wednesday 17 October 2018. (Timing: 3.30-6.30pm). Sign up here.

This year – we are looking at “the evolution of careers” as it provides a sufficient umbrella to discuss topics including considering apprenticeships and university, multi-hyphenate careers (and why many of our students may have these), the importance of being resilient, how technology impacts all career fields and more.

As an Academy, we are proud of the quality, life enhancing careers support we provide and through spending 3 hours with us on this day – you will be fast tracking your understanding of varying industries and opportunities through employers themselves (in panel discussions and / or through opportunities to speak to them directly). You will also hear from universities themselves about their strengths and their admissions processes and give yourself the space, information and personal engagement to allow you to reflect on what kind of career you are carving for yourself (and how to do it effectively).

To understand the format of this event, you can access a highlights video from the 2017 event here and in attending, you will connect with 25+ universities, apprenticeship providers, organisations and entrepreneurs.
