On the 25th of January 2023, 23 employers, representatives of Further Education Institutions and Apprenticeship providers came together with our students for the 2023 Oasis Lister Park Careers Fair. The Main Hall came alive today as Year 9 to Post-16 students engaged with exhibitors, as they gathered application forms, listened to pitches, collected merchandise, and discussed careers aspirations. Jon Zeb, Assistant Principal of New College Bradford said, ‘Your students are some of the most switched-on students I’ve come across. They asked so many pertinent and challenging questions I couldn’t help but be impressed’. Class teachers also mingled and engaged with exhibitors, as they gathered ideas on linking learning to skills, careers choices and aspirations. Damian Griffith – Assistant Principal, ‘the Careers Fair is a key yearly event in the school calendar, it provides year 9 students with some ideas as they start to think about their option choices and Key Stage 4 and 5 students exposure to potential employers and assistance with College and University applications'. Almost all of the Further Education employers have offered to deliver assemblies and workshops this year, so watch this space.
