Clifton College held a careers fair for their Sixth Form. The event had over 140 students in attendance and involved over 25 speakers drawn from the Old Cliftonian and parent communities.
After being inspired by the motivating key note speech in The Redgrave Theatre, the pupils selected three talks to attend, ranging from What is Investment Banking through to What it takes to be an Entrepreneur. We were lucky enough to have Old Cliftonians spanning the generations, from newly qualified accountants through to Chief Executives.
The afternoon was a huge success with many of the pupils buzzing with excitement following the event. We even had one pupil use his Saturday Night Detention as an opportunity to write about how the careers fair had changed his future!
Reflecting on her attendance at the fair, Lower Sixth student Amy Beck said: “Thank you. It was really interesting to see different options and hear about different pathways.” Lower Sixth’s Bethan Hughes who went to the Life as a BBC Journalist session, added: “Very interesting and gave lots of useful hints for future life, not just for journalism.”
Head of Careers and organiser of the event Emma Kenyon concluded: “I am so grateful to all of the speakers who gave up their time and energy to come and support the event. The feedback has honestly been amazing.”
