Highfields will stage a Careers Fair to give students the chance to learn more about the vast range of opportunities available to them after school.

Dozens of exhibitors will be showcasing their services during the event, which will take place from 6pm - 8pm on Wednesday, January 30th.

The event is open to all students from Year 9 through to Sixth Form.

A number of colleges, universities, training providers and employers from a range of industries will be represented at the Careers Fair, including Irwin Mitchell Solicitors, The British Army, The Royal Navy, Barclays, Wolverhampton Grand Theatre, Wolves Women and Gunnebo.

Mr P Rose, Highfields’ Head of Middle School and Careers Leader, said: “At Highfields School, we are fully committed to doing all that we can to ensure that all our students are fully aware and understand the possibilities open to them in every sector of employment and the huge variety of careers on offer to them.

“As well as providing students with the academic foundation to succeed, we pride ourselves on the wide range of opportunities we provide, from Year 7 through to Year 13, for students to explore future pathways and receive quality advice and guidance so that they are able to make the right choices, whether that be Further Education, Higher Education, an Apprenticeship or Employment.

“In January each year, the whole school focuses on CEIAG, with special events scheduled across the years, including the annual Highfields School Careers Fair. This year will be the biggest Careers Fair to date and is an exciting opportunity for all students to meet and talk with local businesses and apprenticeship providers, as well as further and higher education institutions.”
