Academy Students Get A Careers Boost
St George’s Academy held what is thought to be the largest Recruitment Event for school leavers attending Sleaford schools in recent years. Over 30 local employers, recruitment agencies and apprenticeship and training providers attended providing school leavers with a vast array of opportunities ready for when they leave education. The organiser, Miss Jarvis said “as Careers Officer at St George’s Academy, I want to give our students every opportunity of finding a job or apprenticeship when they leave education. The employers attending the event are all currently recruiting so I am hoping that every student from St George’s Academy, Carre’s Grammar School and Kesteven & Sleaford High School who are not going to University will come away with a job or apprenticeship opportunity.”
Mrs Caslin, Head of Sixth Form at St George’s Academy said “This event is a new initiative that we are running this year and we have been overwhelmed by the support of our local employers and training providers as well as the enthusiasm from the students. Obviously it is a daunting time for the Year 13 students choosing not to go to university, but we have worked together to make sure the students in Sleaford are really well supported.”
We spoke to one of the students from the St George’s campus, Sarah, who will be completing her studies in CTEC Health and Social Care, A Level Fine Art and A Level Ethics and Philosophy. She said “I decided to attend as I knew I didn’t want to go to university and felt this was a great platform to gain ideas, meet potential employers and discuss future opportunities with them. I am very grateful to the school for all the help and support they are giving to us. We all had the opportunity to attend mini workshops on body language, CV checking and how to succeed in group interview tasks. The school wants us all to achieve our potential and I now feel more positive about my future employment options.”
