County Careers Fair
On the Friday 17 January, Highsted Grammar School, working in collaboration with Rainham Mark Grammar School, hosted a County Careers Fair at Detling Showground in Kent. The Careers Fair offered the opportunity for students to interact with a large number of exhibitors on one day, and receive an inspiring talk on apprenticeships across all levels of entry.
Around 1300 students, between Years 9 and 11, attended from Rainham Mark Grammar School, Highsted Grammar School, Borden Grammar School, Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, Dover Grammar School for Boys, the Howard School, Will Adams School, and Holcombe Grammar School in Kent. Over 70 different organisations were represented at the fair, from small local organisations to big corporations such as BAE Systems, NatWest, and Southern Railways, as well as universities and charities.
Organisations came ready to discuss entry requirements into the different career opportunities available within their organisations, empowering students to make informed decisions about their career pathways. Sixth Form students at Highsted were also part of the team organising the event and were extremely helpful, polite and supportive during the course of the day in their red T-shirts.
Major Robert Jepson of the Salvation Army, who attended the careers event, said, “The students who attended were a credit to the school. We were pleased with their interaction with our stand and the maturity they had in being willing to listen and thank us for the information they received. It is a worthwhile event and the Salvation Army will be more than willing to be involved again in the future.”
With the support of the Careers & Enterprise Company, Medway Council, the Education People, and Canterbury Christ Church University, the event was a great hit and its positive impact on students has led to the forward planning for 2021.
