Careers and Aspirations Day 2019

    .

On Thursday 14th February 2019 the school will hosted our annual Careers and Aspirations Day.

Over forty representatives from local businesses and organisations attend the events, from a vast array of careers including motor vehicle, mechanical engineering, accountancy, music producer, teaching, armed forces plus many more.  They shared information with small groups of year 9 pupils, giving advice on qualifications, job roles, working life and salary expectations. 

Following the event, feedback has been received from a number of businesses and organisations who attended, comments included:

Year 9 pupils are a credit to Mount St Joseph and engaged very well during session talks.
 
I am amazed by the number of subject/professions represented at this event and the planning and seamless organisation and logistics. Thank you!
 
The students were lovely and polite. This was a worthwhile activity which opened their eyes to new opportunities.
 
Lovely respectful and fabulous students. Really enjoyed the day. Thank you for the invite.

Throughout the week, students also took part in activities for Careers Week!

Next years Careers event will take place on 13th February 2020. If you would like to support our event please contact Mrs S Richards at the school!
