On the evening of Thursday 7th November, Woodham Academy once again opened its doors to welcome businesses, students and parents to its annual Careers Fair. A wide array of providers exhibited to support the school’s Careers Education programme and the evening provided essential information to young people in Year 10 and 11 about post-16 and post 18 progression routes.

At the event students were offered the opportunity to speak on a one to one basis with a careers advisor and the event was preceded by an information evening for parents of students in Year 11.

This session aimed at empowering parents to support their child to move on successfully post-16.

Dave Walker, the event’s organiser, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for students to speak directly to providers of their choice to find out about what is available to them once they leave Woodham Academy. The event continues to be successful because of the excellent relationships the school has with external providers and the dedication it gives to ensuring each and every young person is aware of the post 16 and post 18 pathway choices locally.”
