'Meet The Professionals' Careers Event

Today our Year 9 students took part in a 'Meet The Professionals' Careers Event. Organised by our partners Elevate, ten employers were invited in to talk about their companies and what it is like to work for them.

These organisations, which included the Army, the Navy, Home Office, Unilever and several local enterprises, gave a real insight into the world of work. This event has provided valuable knowledge in the run up to our Year 9 Options Evening taking place next Thursday and is part of our programme of facilitating 'informed decisions'. Two of the employer attendees were ex-students at SJP and it was great to hear their stories - more to follow on this in due course
