Careers Convention 2023

Years 8-11 pupils and parents are invited to our Careers Convention on Tuesday 10 October

 Cirencester Deer Park School and Cirencester Kingshill School
10 October 2023, 6-8pm
at Cirencester Kingshill School

Each year Cirencester Kingshill School and Cirencester Deer Park School join together to create an exciting Careers Convention that we hope will increase our pupils' understanding of the world of work and the various progression routes beyond school.

We take turns to host this event and in 2023 the Careers Convention will be held at Cirencester Kingshill School on Tuesday 10 October, 6-8pm.

All pupils in Years 8, 9, 10 and 11 and their parents/carers are invited to this important event and we hope you will be able to attend.

Many different organisations will be present, ranging from companies to colleges and universities, and the wealth of information that will be available will apply to all year groups.

Year 8: These pupils may think it will be a long time before they need to make choices for their future but it will soon be upon them. Attending the Convention will help them to start considering their futures.

Year 9: Pupils will soon be considering option choices for Key Stage 4. This will be an excellent opportunity to look at universities and FE colleges to see what entry requirements are needed, as well as talking with employers to discover the skills and qualifications required in various occupational areas.

Years 10 & 11: These pupils will soon be making choices for post-16 progression, whether college, sixth form or apprenticeship. There will be people on hand to answer questions. It will also be worth looking at universities to gain an idea of entry requirements and the vast number of courses available.

All of these young people, over the next few months, will have to make decisions that will affect their future. It is vital that they are equipped with as much information as possible.

We hope that you have an informative visit.
