Carew Academy Careers Fair

By Support - November 11th, 2022 | Posted in News

We held our Careers Fair last Friday 4th November, the first Careers event since before lock down.

Our stall holders included: East Surrey College, The Prince’s Trust, Your Move (Estate Agency), Sutton and District Training, The Change Foundation Orchard Hill College and Oxfam.   We also had guest speakers; Elliott Colborn (MP), Daniel Ramsay from Amazon and Carew alumni.

The students visited the stalls in the main hall throughout the morning, then they spent time preparing for their interview slots in the afternoon with school staff and external partners from Sainsbury’s, Your Move, Prince’s Trust and Cacti (IT).

It was a truly inspirational and rewarding day for all involved, our students and staff thoroughly enjoyed the day.  From the brilliantly engaging speeches, the colourful stalls full of activities and information, the informal chats and the more formal interviews in the afternoon we could not have asked for more.

Our students came away with such positive feelings about their next steps and pathways thanks to the input from all participants and the success of the day.

We look forward to building our partnerships with everyone involved for our amazing students and their journey into working life and further education.

Huge thanks to everyone who took part.
