Dear Parent/Carer/Friend of Braes/Partner,
CAREERS FAYRE WEDNESDAY 9TH NOVEMBER 2022 FROM 7.00 PM TO 9.00 PM
Previously we were running a very successful Careers Fayre with the support of parents and friends of Braes. For some years we have not been able to facilitate a live event, opting for a virtual platform instead. We are very excited for the opportunity to re-launch this popular event. The purpose of this evening is to give our young people a wider understanding of the world of work and to assist them in making the right course choices as they plan their pathway through school.
The format of this event is informal with small groups of young people being encouraged to speak to as many people as possible from a wide range of employment areas to find out more about different jobs. Obviously, the success of this event relies on friends, family and employers from our community, willing to come along and share their experiences with our pupils, and as such we would like to invite you to come along.
Here are some examples of the kind of questions they have previously asked:
- What is your job like?
- What is your workplace like, and where is your work based (e.g. office, from home)?
- What is your normal working pattern (e.g. shifts)
- What skills or qualifications do you need for your job?
- What perks do you receive?
If you are able to attend this event please return the following information to Diane Hoggan by email HERE
- Job Title:
- Company Name:
- Industry type (engineering/banking/law etc):
- Contact email:
We require this background information to help us plan and set up the evening as we try to group similar jobs together on the evening.
Mrs Laura Eckles
