Activities included – Mock Interview with CV (Armed Forces), Subject Talks (Year 13 and 14 pupils), QUB Talk, CAFRE Talk, Employment and Volunteering Talks, Careers Quiz and Individual Subject Choice Interview.
Dr Hall would like to thank everyone who helped make this event a great success but especially all of our amazing Sixth Form pupils who presented each A level subject with knowledge, honesty and , of course, humour!
Subject Choice Interviews were conducted by Mr Carville, Mrs Haugh, Mrs Taylor andMr McGonigle as well as career staff.
Pupils completed a Careers Quiz to identify their skill set and get career ideas.
Six members of the Armed Forces guided by Marti McConnell interviewed all of our Year 12 pupils (in groups of 3 or 4) for a part-time job in a local hotel.
Talks were given by QUB (HE Options), CAFRE (FE and alternative Pathways), Mark Huddleston -NI Commissioner for Employment and Skills (Skills Currently Sought by Employers)as well as Volunteer Now and Orchardville Society (Skill Development through Volunteering).
