WPT Careers Fair 2023

On Friday 1st December, we held a Careers Fair at our Cranworth Road site for students across the Trust to gain valuable insight into the Post-16 and career opportunities that are available.

Students from Clifton Community School, Rawmarsh Community School, Thrybergh Academy and Wickersley School & Sports College came along to talk to a wide range of providers including local colleges, universities, the armed forces, public sector organisations and private sector companies.

There was a wide selection of providers available such as:

  • Wickersley Sixth Form
  • Sheffield Hallam University
  • Ministry of Justice
  • Armed Forces
  • TRC
  • AMRC Training Centre
  • Virgin Money

 

And many more!

Josie Webster, WPT Careers Lead, said: “On Friday 1st December all Y11 students from across the Trust had their careers day. Whilst in school, students learnt about their post 16 options, CV writing and how to make great decisions.  In addition all students attended a careers fair. The fair was host to around 50 post 16 providers, including colleges, apprenticeship and training providers. We also welcomed three universities  We really appreciate the support of the local businesses and colleges as it makes such a huge difference to our students and helps them to think about careers they had never considered. The exhibitors were extremely impressed with the students who asked some great questions and showed real maturity throughout the day.  It’s now time to start getting applications in and we would like to wish them well.”

The Gainsborough Academy also held their own Careers Fair on the same day. You can read all about that here.
 
On behalf of Wickersley Partnership Trust, we’d like to say a huge thank you to all businesses and educational establishments for taking the time to attend, and advise and inspire our young people.
