IMG_0116The Corsham School Careers Fair

Our Year 10, 11 and 6th form students attended our annual Careers Fair which took place on Thursday 3rd July 2014. There were over 45 stands from local and national businesses, careers on offer ranged from Engineers, Finance and accountants, hospitality and leisure, nursing and veterinary. The students had a fantastic opportunity to speak to the companies which enabled them to get an in depth knowledge about the workplace and will have inspired them about future employment. We are very proud of the way our students responded to this event, with many of the visitors commenting on excellent engagement and behaviour. The school would like to thank the many businesses and representatives that attended. It was a huge success and the information gained by our students from the Careers Fair is invaluable.
Quotes from students:

” I found that by talking to people doing the job that I am interested in, it helped me understand my options in life”

“What I found most useful was the variety and enthusiasm of the employers”

“The variety of different companies and the communication skills of the employers”

“I liked being able to talk to people who actually do the job and hear their opinion of it. This gave me the opportunity to see whether the job would be rewarding and whether it is enjoyable or not”

“The fair was useful because talking to someone of a particular profession gave a certain perspective over what I needed to do.”

Quotes from employers:

“I am so impressed with Corsham school students – unfailingly pleasant, polite and friendly. The 6th form helpers were amazing”

” Terrific event – lovely set of students”

“Very worthwhile experience, enjoyed discussing our company with your students and their future aspirations – very enjoyable morning”
