The Two Counties Trust hosts inspiring Careers Fair for 900 students
More than 900 students from the Trust were given the opportunity to meet over 60 employers at a specially organised careers fair at Festival Hall Leisure Centre, in Nottingham.
The Trust’s careers team arranged this event so that students could hear advice direct from employers and so they could gain networking experience and valuable knowledge on careers and the subjects they need to study to win jobs.
The careers advisors have been particularly working with Year 11 GCSE students across the academies, in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, to ensure they are fully aware of future education routes for after they finish their GCSEs. Careers advisors have also been assisting the Post 16 students, helping them with UCAS applications to university and other high-level apprenticeships and courses.
Charlotte King who is the Careers Team Manager at the Trust, said, “I am so pleased that the event was such a success for the students, teachers and the organisations who attended. The feedback has been extremely positive and we are looking forward to organising many more events in the future to aid our students in their careers and further education choices.”
Richard Vasey, CEO of the Trust, said, “the careers fair was an excellent and very valuable event, both for students from the schools, but also for the businesses and organisations present. It ran very smoothly, all the students engaged in very meaningful discussions about future pathways and opportunities. I was so pleased to see the students taking this opportunity seriously and considering what their future could hold. Thank you to The Two Counties Trust Careers team for working so hard to organise this event.”
