Careers Speed Dating

This week our Upper Remove pupils were treated to an afternoon with a difference…. Careers Speed Dating!

In small groups of 3 or 4,  pupils were given just 5 minutes to meet and get to know about the occupations of each of our visiting professional guests. The career areas represented were wide-ranging, including Media, Finance, Education, Engineering, Surveying, Law, Human Resources, Information Technology, Management and Ministry.

Everyone quickly got into the swing of it and, at each ring of the bell, guests moved and a flurry of handshakes and introductions was swiftly followed by the reassuring buzz of conversation throughout College Hall.

‘The pupils were an absolute pleasure and without exception friendly, polite and chatty’…. one of the many positive comments from our guests.

‘I heard all about a project in Peru to channel water to remote villages, I’d love to do that!’ …. Feedback from one of our pupils fulfilling the hopes for an event designed to inspire and broaden career horizons.

The final note on this has to be to thank each of the 36 parents and OVs that took time out of their busy schedules to attend. The response to initial pleas for support was overwhelming, the wealth of experience humbling and the enthusiasm on the day unfaltering. Thank you!
