Year 11 will be visiting The What Career Live show at the NEC, Birmingham, on Friday 3rd March 2017.
The What Career Live? show takes place in London and Birmingham in 2017 and will help school leavers decide what to do next, whether it's an apprenticeship, training programme or heading to university after A Levels.
What Career Live? is co-located with its sister show, What University Live? which will help school leavers identify and select which university they wish to apply to, and give parents the opportunity to find out more about how much it will cost, whether it's 'value for money' and the truth about student fees and debt.
Pupils were first taken to King's School where they had an introduction to UCAS courses website so that they can start researching which courses they may want to do in order to make sure they choose the correct A levels and don't close down any options for later on.
Then they listened to a presentation about how to use their time well at the show. It included advice about thinking about apprenticeships as well as University courses.
At the show the girls spent lots of time in conversation with stall holders involved in manufacturing, healthcare, the Services, technical trades and consulting as well as talking to Universities. Some of them attended a workshop on how to succeed at interviews others being coached about CV writing.
Thanks to King's School, Gloucester for kindly taking our pupils along with them to the NEC.
