Ca­reers fair sees stu­dents forge links

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

ALL Hal­lows stu­dents are look­ing to the fu­ture af­ter at­tend­ing a ca­reers fair at Mac­cles­field Town Hall.

The kids from year 10 were in­vited to at­tend the event or­gan­ised by the Mac­cles­field Cham­ber of Com­merce, who used the event to launch the Mac­cles­field Pledge, a scheme that will forge closer links be­tween young peo­ple and em­ploy­ers.

All Hal­lows Catholic Col­lege is al­ready in­volved in this ini­tia­tive with 20 stu­dents in Years 10 and 11 tak­ing part in the var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties.

The ca­reers fair and the pledge helped to de­velop young peo­ple’s em­ploy­a­bil­ity skills as well as pro­vid­ing busi­nesses with en­thu­si­as­tic and in­no­va­tive em­ploy­ees of the fu­ture, with more than lo­cal and na­tional busi­nesses at­tend­ing the event.

The stu­dents also took part in work­shops based around a va­ri­ety of top­ics, in­clud­ing univer­sity, CV and let­ter writ­ing and ap­ply­ing for ap­pren­tice­ships.

Lor­raine Rem­fry, learn­ing leader of year 10, said: “Year 10 stu­dents found the ca­reers fair very in­for­ma­tive and were able to gather in­for­ma­tion and con­tacts that will as­sist them with fu­ture ca­reer choices.”
