SJL Careers Fair 2018Posted on 29/03/2018
Wednesday 21 March heralded our largest ever Careers Day, with the aim of educating our Year 10 and Year 12 students on the full array of opportunities available to them post A Level including School Leaver, Apprenticeship Programmes and Graduate Schemes.
In the morning our Year 12 Students were joined by their peers from Samuel Ryder and Bushey Academy to attend 6 talks which they had selected from a carousel of 60 presentations delivered by Industry professionals. In the afternoon, our Year 10 students attended the Careers Fair, in response to many STEM companies requesting this early engagement. The companies commented how maturely they conducted themselves and they were impressed with the questions they asked and their levels of interest.
Over the course of the day over 1000 students joined us from 9 different Secondary Schools, a fact that helped us to retain and attract a high calibre of local, national and international companies with 70+ organisations filling our Sports Hall to capacity and all offering our young people specific information on post A Level Career opportunities within their own companies. Affinity Water, Britvic, Thomson Reuters and MBDA were among some of the new companies we welcomed this year and once again we attracted 8 of The Times Top 10 Graduate Recruitment Employers.
