Careers Fair inspires students for future


Students were inspired to look forward to the future during a Careers Fair, which saw more than 40 exhibitors showcasing what they have to offer after Highfields.

The event was open to all students from Year 9 through to Sixth Form and more than 100 visitors poured through the doors to see the huge range of choices available to them after school.

Colleges, universities, training providers and employers from a range of industries were represented at the Careers Fair, including Irwin Mitchell Solicitors, The Royal Navy, The British Army, West Midlands Ambulance Service, West Midlands Fire Service, Jaguar Land Rover and Barclays.


Mr A Jeavons, Highfields’ Careers and Business Links Manager, said: “This Careers Fair provided a fantastic opportunity for students to explore in detail the range of progression routes and career opportunities available to them at Post-16 and beyond.

“We were overwhelmed with the turnout from students, parents and exhibitors. It was certainly  Highfields’ busiest Careers Fair to date. The atmosphere was amazing and we are so very grateful to our exhibitors and everyone who came along for making it such a huge success.

“We are already looking forward to making next year’s event even bigger and better. With this in mind, if you have any feedback you wish to provide, on both strengths and areas you think could be developed, we would love to hear it.”
