Future options explored at annual Careers Fair

A large number of Rydal Penrhos pupils got the opportunity to find out more about their future options at a recent event.

The school held its annual Careers Fair on Friday, March 2, which was open to Year 11 and Sixth Form pupils and featured a wealth of professions in addition to further education options.

Representatives from the National Health Service were present, with surgeons, specialists and dentists on hand to answer any questions relating to their respective jobs, while engineering, accountancy, physiotherapy, retail, banking and alternative energy also proved to be popular with the different groups.

Two universities also made it to the Careers Fair despite the adverse weather conditions, with the University of Leeds and the University of Sterling chatting with pupils throughout about the wide-ranging courses they have on offer and the employment opportunities that can arise from achieving a successful degree.

This is the latest in a series of initiatives put on by staff at Rydal Penrhos, which have been implemented to give each pupil the best possible platform to prepare and plan for their future education and subsequent career paths.

Head of Sixth Form Pete Lavery, said: “Our Careers Fair is an essential part of the preparation process for each pupil as they look to finalise their decisions relating to their options for university and work in the future.

“I would like to thank everyone that managed to come along despite the bad weather making it difficult for some, and their insight was invaluable during what is a critical stage in their overall development.”
