Last week saw a number of businesses and further education providers exhibit at the academy’s very successful year 9 careers fair.

With companies ranging from DFS to the NHS, Nottinghamshire Fire Service to the British Army, Vision West Notts to Nottingham College and many more, there was something of interest for everyone.

Students were keen to engage with exhibitors and find out as much as they could about each individual company/college. Not only did they find it useful, they also seemed to really enjoy the experience.

This event, part of the process to help year 9 students decide on their GCSE subject choices, is designed to inform them about the many different careers and post 16 opportunities available to them. It also helps point them in the right direction with regards their subject choices.
