The Careers Convention took place last night and we welcomed many students along with their parents who were all very keen to ask questions and listen to experts in their field. The event was open to students in Year 8 upwards and was a huge success.
Exhibitors represented a varied range of careers including Journalism, Law, Medicine, Accounting and Veterinary Medicine, to name but a few. Careers presentations were also held in the Sixth Form Centre and the students who attended these talks found them to be extremely informative. As a number of local universities were also in attendance, students took full advantage to ask about what subjects were offered and also the grades they would need.
Many Old Westholmians also returned to school for the convention and it was lovely to hear how passionate they were about their chosen careers. Head of Careers for Westholme, Mrs Hibberd commented, “It was wonderful to see so many students taking full advantage of this event and I would like to thank all of the exhibitors for taking the time to attend the convention.”
