On the 27th March, Year 10 students were given the opportunity to speak face to face with employers from across the Island. We had over 40 representatives from different organisations giving advice and insight into a huge variety of career paths.

“Today has really helped me to understand what skills I need to have for a future career. I would like to work for the NHS and in healthcare so it was great to have the NHS stand here today to find out more.”

“I don’t know what I want to do when I leave school, however meeting the different employers has given me the opportunity to see what’s available. It’s been really good to see lots of stands with different career choices that I didn’t know about.”

“There is a good range of voluntary and salaried career stalls. I would like to become a doctor so it was interesting to find out more from the NHS stall”.

“This career fair is better than others that I have been to as we have been encouraged to speak to a variety of employers and it’s made us think about other career options. We also liked that we were able to sit around a table to casually talk to employers.”

“This careers fair is a really good opportunity to show young people what careers are available in the agricultural industry. We like to talk about our own experiences to show just how varied the career path can be. We also advise on grants available to students keen to pursue a career in this field. Overall we think there is a really nice atmosphere today and would love to come back next year.”

“We are strong believers that is it so important to inspire young people in society. Many of the students that I have met today have not heard of Biomedical Sciences and what the career of a Chief Scientist in the NHS looks like. The students were intrigued and were feeling more confident of the choices that they know are now available to them”.
