‘We aspire to be the best at everything we do’

Careers Convention

This year’s Careers Convention was held on Wednesday 7th March and was a great success! We had nearly 30 businesses, apprenticeship providers, universities and colleges attend to inspire our students and open their eyes to different careers opportunities there are out there.

Students from years 8 through to 11 had the opportunity to visit the stalls, speak to the businesses and providers and find out information about what they had to offer. It was a great opportunity for students to meet a whole range of businesses such as Lloyds, Ramsden Solicitors and Abzorb Telecoms as well as speak to colleges such as Bradford, Calderdale and Kirklees and universities like Leeds and Huddersfield.

Together Housing brought a boiler and welding gear for students to have a go at soldering their own copper pipe, you could try on high visibility and safety gear with Jackson Engineering and Eureka had juggling balls for the students to have a go at and dried meal worm to try eating!

A really fantastic event! Thank you to everyone who supported us and we are already looking forward to next year’s!.
