Sunbury Manor held its annual Careers Evening on Wednesday the 11th Oct, this important event is part of the Careers Education, Advice and Guidance provided to our students in school. The aim is to help our students make the best possible choices regarding the many ‘post 16- education and career pathways’ available to them after they leave Sunbury Manor.
We were delighted to have all the local colleges attend, in addition to the these were Babcock, JLT and Omni Beauty, who were also present at the Careers evening for those students interested in apprenticeships.
Innervate Careers services were also on hand to provide independent careers advice to our student and parents.
The evening was well attended by our current Y11 students, who had the opportunity to gain advice and guidance on how to apply to their selected colleges and apprenticeships to guarantee them a place next year.
We also invited Yr 9 & 10 students to take part in the Careers evening so they can assess the different Further Education and Careers Pathways available to them ‘post 16’ and to help our students select their GCSE Options, and gain better understanding regarding the entry requirements needed to access further education courses or apprenticeships in the future.
Our students found the evening a real asset and here's what some of them had to say:
"I found the Careers Evening very helpful and useful. The different colleges that were there gave me a variety of ideas on what I would like to do after I leave school. It helped me narrow down my choices and made me think more about what I want to do and where I want to go. Everyone there was very helpful and polite which allowed me to ask all the questions that I wanted to, I got the answers that I needed and I recognised that not all colleges had the courses I am thinking of studying, it therefore made me see what colleges are a better fit for me." Jesse O'Reilly (Y11)
"Careers Evening was a great help to me as a year 11 student, I was able to speak to the various different local colleges and think about the variety of careers I could go into. With this, it helped me clear my mind on the route I want to take when I leave school. It also gave me a chance to ask the individual colleges what specific grades are needed to get into the college and to also take the courses I want to. It was very helpful". Ella Chadwick Y11
