Queen Anne’s Hosts Careers, Universities and Gap Fair

Wednesday 7th February 2018

On Thursday 1 February 2018, Queen Anne’s School was delighted to host the annual Careers, Universities and Gap Fair where over 40 representatives from the world of work, universities and gap year providers joined us.

“The Careers, Universities and Gap Fair was a fantastic evening filled with much excitement. It was so great to be able to get a first hand perspective of university from people who have experienced the lifestyle themselves and being able to ask many questions to deepen our knowledge of our future aspirations. Further to this, getting to hear from business that offer apprenticeships and gap year advisers, was an added bonus. It was a very useful event and one which we are very lucky to have.” Aoife J (L6)

 

  

 

There was an engaging talk from Queen Anne’s recent alumna, Roisin, who secured an apprenticeship at Coca-Cola last year; she spoke about the advantages of studying for an apprenticeship, what her apprenticeship at Coca-Cola involves and why she chose to do an apprenticeship rather than go to university. Current students also heard from University College London, who gave an informative talk on university applications, degree choices and independent living.

 

 

 

New to the fair this year was a Networking event. Thank you to the number of fantastic volunteers who were shared information about their careers pathways in an informal setting. This gave the students a perfect opportunity to develop their networking skills.

 

 “Experiences with employers and educators that make a difference are a key part of any good careers education strategy. We were delighted to be able to showcase such a broad range of universities and industries, and particularly pleased that so many students took advantage of the opportunity to talk to them.”  Trina Noyes, Queen Anne’s Careers Advisor

  

 

Thank you to all those who volunteered their time and attended this event, we believe it was hugely beneficial to current students as they choose their GCSEs, A Levels and career pathways.
