World of Work Careers Talk Programme

Our World of Work Careers Talk Programme is off to a fantastic start. Careers Manager, Greg McLean has been organising a wide range of talks for our students with the support of Assistant Director of Sixth Form, Chris Cooke. The aim is that the talks will inform student decision-making and future career choices.

This term, we have held talks on;

  • Apprenticeships and Traineeships
  • Medicine
  • Teaching (Primary & Secondary)
  • The British Army
  • Law

We have been delighted to have welcomed guest speakers in from the industries themselves to talk about their first hand experiences. Thank you to;

  • Karen Gallagher (Career Connect)
  • Craig Stewart (Kaplan Traineeships)
  • Dr Fiona Watson (University of Liverpool)
  • David Gillin, a former student (Childwall CE Primary)
  • Mark Fidler, a former student (Gilmour Infant School)
  • John Foulkes MBE (former Director of Sixth Form)
  • Paul Keenan (Trainee Supervisor at St Margaret’s)

A whole new set of talks are set to take place in the new year that include Business, Marketing & PR along with Media, Journalism and Engineering.
