Careers Fair 2019
Walton High Careers Fair
Walton’s first ever evening careers fair was an outstanding success! With over 40 exhibitors from local employers to national organisations and educators, over 400 students and their parents from years 7 to 13 visited and had the opportunity to talk with employers and educators about future opportunities along with gaining knowledge about current opportunities and apprenticeships. Outside, an exhibit of a crane and TV film of the work it does gave visitors an insight into a range of engineering careers. Industry stands included health and wellbeing, policing, engineering, safety, construction, uniformed services, banking, care work, finance and business, tourism, design, sports, science, along with universities and local training providers. A competition run by one exhibitor enabled students to win shopping vouchers, and freebies of bags, pens, confectionary, health foods and mugs were also on offer. Walton were delighted that so many students showed interest and motivation to find out more about their future opportunities.
We would like to thank parents, pupils and exhibitors for helping to make this event such a success and look forward to an even bigger event next year.
