Weobley High school held our first Careers networking event since covid, firstly I would like to say this was a great success and our students should be very proud of how they conducted themselves. We had 34 outside agencies attending, these ranged from employers, employees, colleges and apprenticeship providers.
The event ran with the outside agencies being at their own tables around the outside of the hall, the students being placed into groups of three, the students had 5 minutes at each table to ask questions about their career such as what is involved and the qualifications needed etc. This is a great opportunity for students to work on their own skills and confidence, also meeting a diverse range of people who have had very different career paths, many students coming away full of new, current information.
The feedback from the outside agencies was all very positive, congratulating our year 11’s on their politeness and professionalism.
