We are excited about helping our students to think about their future opportunities!!
As Abraham Lincoln said: “The best way to predict the future is to create it”
During National Careers Week we are focusing on inspiring our students to think about ‘their future’ and the opportunities that are available to them. Working closely with the careers department teachers in all subjects will be running sessions throughout the week helping students to connect their subjects to possible careers. We aim to enthuse and inspire students to think about what is possible!
Also, students will have the opportunity to post any future career related questions for the college’s careers team to answer. This of course is in addition to the college’s normal careers service that offers one to one information advice and guidance to all students. Our students can email Careers@wsfc.ac.uk to request a careers interview at any point in their college career.
On the College’s ‘Impact Opportunities’ site many careers week activities will be advertised, such as the Explore Careers Series of events that includes virtual question and answer sessions with an ex-police officer, criminologist and solicitor.
