Highly successful careers fair
Harrogate Grammar School recently held its fourth highly successful Careers Fair attended by over 600 year 7-13 students and parents who had the opportunity to speak with delegates representing 60 different businesses and employers.
The school was delighted that a wide range of employers and higher education establishments including Labour Market Sectors include Engineering, Construction, Manufacturing, Business, Finance, Legal, Creative, Digital, Media, Leisure, Tourism, Public Services, Retail, Transport, Logistics, Gap Years, Science and Health & Social Care agreed to support the event again as well as a number of new organisations for this year.
The event provided the opportunity for business partners to speak to students and parents about both the range of opportunities within their organisation and to be able to discuss information such as career prospects, qualifications required, different career paths, what they actually do day to day in their role, additional skills/qualities required for their role and advice as to what students can be doing in preparation for entry into the sector.
