Wolverhampton Grammar School’s Sixth Form Centre and Libraries were a hive of activity on Monday 6th February as School hosted representatives from almost fifty universities and employers at the annual Careers Forum. All students from Years 7 to 13 (Upper Sixth) and their parents were invited to attend, with staggered time slots meaning that students had more access to the expertise and guidance on offer.
Career sectors represented were typically diverse, including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) related pathways, professional services and healthcare. Universities in attendance included both local and national institutions, including several from the highly-sought after Russell Group including Warwick, University of Birmingham and University of Oxford. Students also had the opportunity to receive more tailored advice on careers in medicine, the media, teaching and degree apprenticeships in a range of careers talks with experts and practitioners.
Exhibitors commented on our students’ extraordinary willingness to engage in mature conversation about their potential futures, with Year 8 and 9 in particular impressing the delegates with their well-planned and purposeful questions.
