Students attend ‘speed networking’ Careers Event


Students wasted no time in getting to grips with the range of employment options available to them after Highfields during a ‘speed networking’ careers event.

Twelve students from Year 10 attended the event at Wolverhampton Racecourse to learn more about employment opportunities and careers routes.

The event was a collaboration between the Careers and Enterprise company, Black Country Chamber of Commerce and the Black Country Skills Factory.

Mr A Jeavons, Highfields’ Careers and Business Links Manager, said: The aim of the event was to give students a clear picture of the array of career opportunities that are available to them.

“Before the event students prepared questions to ask employers which they then used when speaking to industry experts about routes into careers, general work activities and employment opportunities.”

The event took place just weeks after Highfields hosted its biggest ever Careers Fair. More than 40 exhibitors visited the school in February to showcase the huge range of choices available to students Post-16.
