Buckingham Skills’ Fair: Yr11

Martha Blake writes about her experience at the Buckingham Careers’ Fair.

On Friday the 18th of October, Mr Hollyman, Miss Tuddenham and Mrs Southon took 50 lucky Year 11s to the Buckingham Careers’ Fair. The event was fully interactive; the only way the companies were allowed to have a stall was if they pledged to bring something to show the students that involved them in a practical manner in their companies. All the stall holders were very kind and friendly and if you didn’t know what to ask them, they would introduce themselves and the work of their company. I found the event very useful, because it allowed me to know more about how many different skills you need to gain a foothold into their their profession.  It was a great experience for everyone who went to this trip: everyone took something out of it. One of the mottos that the teachers had was, “If you come out knowing what you don’t want to do that is as good as coming out knowing what you want to do.”

My friend Abbie and I looked for NHS opportunities, as we are both interested in working for the NHS. We were directed to many different websites to do with the different roles available. Everyone was very informative about the different professions we could pursue. The one thing that I came away with was that as soon as possible I should start look around colleges and universities.

The website team thank Martha for writing this review for us.
