The South Wolverhamtpon & Bilston Academy

Year 10 and 12 students attended The Skills & Apprenticeship Show at Dunstall Racecourse in April. This was an opportunity to look at future careers and pathways and to inspire them to consider the options that are available to them. Students were able to find out about different careers, meet employers, get career advice and guidance and join in with have-a-go activities.

Careers Fayre

Year 10 students took part in a day dedicated to careers before Easter. They learnt about apprenticeships and university and also the importance of understanding their strengths and how to prepare for the workplace environment. Students also got to meet over 20 employers during their ‘Employer Speed Dating’ session where they spent 3 minutes finding out about each person’s job. This included a wide range of roles from solicitors and engineers to policy advisors and technologists. The employers were very impressed with our students and had a very enjoyable time answering their questions.
