Year 9 Students Attend SHAPE Careers Fair
Just before half-term, on Tuesday 10 February, all Year 9 students visited the annual SHAPE Careers Fair at Tomlinscote School.
As in previous years there were over 100 exhibitors from employers, colleges, universities and apprenticeship providers who were all eager to speak to Collingwood College students regarding their upcoming option choices and future career aspirations.
This year, the Careers Fair incorporated a designated, interactive STEM zone with leading organisations within the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths sectors.
During the visit, Year 9 students were involved in a range of activities and they took the opportunity to find out about different careers, the qualifications required to enter them and the typical progression routes after Year 11 which they may wish to consider.
Years 9 to 13 students and their parents and carers were also invited to attend the event during the evening session.
