Careers Fair

Dear Parents/Carers,

On Thursday 1st of December your child will attend a Careers Fair being held in the main hall of the school. After being unable to hold such an event for a long time, this is a fantastic opportunity for them to explore and consider opportunities available to them when they leave SJP.

A wide range of universities, further education establishments, training providers and businesses will be attending and are keen to discuss and share information with our young people. We will provide your child with a research sheet to allow them to make notes as they visit the stalls.

This event can work really well if the children engage and this is where you can help. Please talk to your child about their future goals and dreams. Give them the benefit of your experience and encourage them to ask questions on the day. A wealth of knowledge will be in the room and they need to make the most of it.

Each child will receive a pack that will allow them to record their encounters. There will be a map to help them to navigate their way around along with suggested questions to ask, depending on whom they are talking to, but they can ask anything they want to.

Thank you for your support as always.

Mr Wellens

Careers Lead - HFCMAT
