Students Inspired by Careers Fair
On Wednesday 27th April, The Basildon Upper Academy hosted an inspirational Careers Fair.
Students were given the opportunity to meet representatives from a range of industries, apprenticeship providers, universities and colleges to help them start planning for their futures.
Throughout the event, students were able to learn more about the different roles within the wide range of exhibiting sectors. Some students were already set on their future pathway and spent time delving deeper into their chosen career. Other students used the fair to see what was on offer and think about their next steps.
The feedback received from exhibitors was positive, with them commenting on how impressed they had been with our students' confidence, manners and how well they engaged with the event.
“I really enjoyed the Careers Fair, it provided really useful insights into further education options and career paths. It was a fantastic event and I would love for them to come back.”
