Blenheim Careers Fair a success with lots of familiar faces!Posted on: 18/06/2018
On 15 June the annual Blenheim Careers Fair was held in the Main Hall. It was attended by 33 organisations representing large businesses, local employers, the public sector, the defence services, colleges, gap years and NCS The Challenge.
All of our students in years 9, 10 and 12 visited the Fair and had the opportunity to meet with employers to find out about the various career pathways and work opportunities their companies and other organisations offer.
Our Alumni were also invited to attend the Fair this year for the first time and we were delighted to see 10 past students representing their employers. Among them were SCC, Atkins, TfL, Disciple Media, CISCO, JLL, Aon and Willmott Dixon.
The aim of the Fair was to raise student aspirations and help them to make the link between education and the world of work. The presence of past students went a long way to achieving this goal and gave students a real sense of what can be achieved after their time at Blenheim.
We hope that their interactions with all of the employers will inspire them to see the value of achieving good qualifications and will motivate them to work hard.
Many thanks to all of the employers and Alumni that came along to make this year's Careers Fair the most successful yet!
