Barton Peveril welcomed over 50 local employers, Apprenticeship providers and Gap Year Organisations to its annual Futures Fair. Barton Peveril students attended to find out about all their options after college, whilst pupils from Wildern School, Thornden School, Wyvern College and Brookfield Community School were also invited to start thinking about their futures.
Representatives from some of the nation’s largest employers attended the Futures Fair, including IBM, ExxonMobil, NATS and the RAF. Barton Peveril alumni were also present and representing their current employers, whom they first met at last year’s Futures Fair.
Thinking about the future
Wyvern College student Libby praised the Futures Fair, during her visit:
“This is a great event because it gives you a wide variety of things you could go into after school.”
Barton Peveril’s Career’s Manager, Shoonagh Hubble, also spoke on the event:
“Staff and students were delighted by the wide range of industries represented at the Fair, from engineering to accountancy, health, maritime, and computer solutions. It was great to see so many Barton Peveril students and pupils from local schools engaging with the representatives, discussing their futures and the careers they want to pursue.”
The Futures Fair followed the Higher Education Fair, were representatives from Universities around the country attended to discuss all aspects of University life with current students.
