Careers Education plays a very important part of the students journey at Longfield Academy. At the crucial stage of choosing GCSE options we run a Mini Careers Fair so that the students can look at how different careers may require different subjects.
Each student was given a workbook of questions that they could ask all of the participants. A number of students chose to ask their own questions and some asked very detailed questions.
We were very fortunate that we had a range of volunteers from Science based careers, Teaching, University of Greenwich, Training Providers, Human Resources and the Army.
The students all had an hour in the Lecture Theatre and they rotated round all of the participants in small groups.
A number of the volunteers mentioned how polite the students were. It was a pleasure to see how the students positively engaged in the event.
