Looking to the future for National Careers Week


Highfields will be urging all students to look forward to the future by hosting a packed programme of activities, workshops and trips to mark National Careers Week.

The event runs from March 4th-8th and will allow students from all year groups to get a greater insight into a range of professions and the pathways available to fulfil their career dreams.

The school has teamed up with a number of universities, businesses and apprenticeship providers to support the national event.

The programme of activities includes workshops in Film Studies, Art & Design and Animation at Gloucester University, a site visit to Jessup Brothers Construction, and a trip to Aston University Medical School for a ‘Pathways to Healthcare’ event.

Careers-based lessons and assemblies will be taking place throughout the week, whilst there will also be talks about apprenticeships, interview skills and CV writing workshops.

Mr P Rose, Highfields’ Head of Middle School and Careers Leader, said: “We’ve got lots going on around school to mark National Careers Week, encouraging students from all year groups to look forward to the future and learn more about the opportunities available to them to fulfil their career dreams after school.”

The week-long event comes after Highfields hosted its biggest ever Careers Fair, which featured dozens of exhibitors and was attended by hundreds of students and their families.
