Mrs Eileen Bishop, Careers Lead, commented “This has been a fantastic opportunity for all of our students to meet with employers and training organisations. They gave our students the opportunity to engage in a meaningful conversation, ask questions and be inquisitive about their career choices and aspirations for their future. Our whole school is very grateful to the companies and organisations for giving their time to support our students”.
