Careers Fair

The Careers Fair will take place on Saturday 18 March from 9.10am to 1.00pm and will provide a wealth of information, guidance and advice on careers and universities.

OP Felicity Hannah, a financial journalist, currently presenting Radio 4’s Money Box and the Green Money Show on Radio 5 Live, will give two keynote addresses over the course of the morning and in addition to three career/university speaker sessions, attendees will also be able to visit the Exhibition part of the Fair in the Sixth Form Centre.  Light refreshments will be available.

Pupils in Years 10 to Sixth Form should register from Friday 17 February and select the three sessions they would like to attend, plus a reserve choice. To help with your decision making you should refer to the Advice For Choosing Talks here and Speakers Biographies and Talk Topics here. We would like pupils and students to be accompanied by a parent or parents to the event, so conversations can continue afterwards.

Comments, Head of Careers, Jacqui Quinney, "The event will be a unique experience and will enable our pupils and students to gain a real insight into the work of work and further study, thus helping them prepare for important decisions that they will need to make over the next few years at Princethorpe and beyond".
