Future Success - Year 12, Skills London Trip

As part of our Sixth Form Enrichment Programme - Future Success - Year 12 students visited Skills London on Friday 15th  November. 
 
 
This huge event held at the ExCel Centre, was packed full of exhibitors from universities, companies and public sector organisations which offered students the chance to network and investigate future careers.
 
After journeying across London, students were set the challenge to talk to at least four exhibitors and collect the most innovative freebie to encourage conversations with employers.  Students were spotted exploring the Montessori education stand and learning about training to be a primary teacher, busting myths around working in the construction industry as well as chatting with medical students about the realities of training to be a doctor.  
 
This was a fantastic opportunity for students to consider where they might like to complete work experience in the summer term 2020.
