More than 500 students and parents flocked to Tupton Hall Careers Fair to discover the wide range of career paths open to them.
The second event of its kind saw employers, training providers, support services, voluntary organisations, colleges and universities gather under one roofr to inspire and inform students.
The event was open to students right across the school from Years 7 - 13 and it was extremely well attended, with students showing a clear interest in their own futures.
Careers Fair organiser Mrs Lisa Savino said: "The students had an exciting evening packed full of useful information about their future career choices."
"The main purpose of the Careers Fair was to raise aspirations amongst our students and to open their eyes to the many different opportunities available to them."
"The feedback from students, parents and staff has all been really positive and the event was a great success. We must say a very big thank you to everyone who attended for their inspiring presence."
Several Tupton Hall alumni - or former students - came back for the evening to share their expreiences with current students. They included Jade Ashmore who is a world class competetive boxer, Sammi-Jo Wright who owns her own flourishing hair salon in Clay Cross, Alex Bramley a university graduate and primary school teacher and Mark Heardman who has worked in IT but is now a mural artist.
Students should now be thinking about what they could do to boost their chances of achieving their career ambitions. Helpful advice for every age group is available in this booklet. You can also find useful resources on CV writing, work experience and more on our Careers web pages.
