Dee Khaira and May Elliott-Joshi, Trainee clinical psychologists at IoPPN, King's College London and SLaM NHS Trust said:
“It's was wonderful to see so many organisations giving up their time to come and talk to students, and having such positive engagement and curiosity from students. It was really positive that the school was getting students to think about their careers and the path that they need to take to get there from such a young age.”
The fair was a great success. There was great engagement, enthusiasm and attendance from our Year 11’s, who all walked away with so much information, contacts and a clearer view on what they would like to pursue for their futures.
A special thank you to Ms Hall (who is our Careers and Work Related Learning Practinioner) for organising this event. Also a special thank you to all the businesses, organisations and partners of Ark EGA who where in attendance.
