Careers fair sees students forge links
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.”
