Young people get glimpse of their futures
EMPLOYERS had the chance to meet potential employees at a school’s successful event.
Chesham Grammar School, in White Hill, held its biennial Careers Convention on the evening of Wednesday, November 11.
This was the biggest event of its kind at the school with 123 exhibitors attending, covering a wide range of areas including education and training, engineering, cyber security, media, print and publishing, legal and professional, security and armed forces, building and construction, financial services, translation, civil service, music, fashion, marketing, architecture, medicine, archaeology, IT, accountancy, sport and veterinary.
The event was organised by the school’s careers and PHSEE co-ordinator Sue Grice, who was helped by the school’s gap year student, Ollie Choules, over the final month of preparations.
Ms Grice said: “It is the first event of this kind that I have organised and I am very grateful for Ollie’s help. It has been a large task, but we take the provision of careers advice very seriously at CGS.”
The school’s Equestrian Club also took the opportunity to sell refreshments to raise funds new fencing around its paddock.
