Student’s view of the Destinations Expo Careers event

On Wednesday 18th January, Years 10 and 11 departed from school to Windsor Racecourse for a careers expo. Once we arrived we were greeted by some of the organisers of the event and they introduced us to the venue and showed us where to go. We were amazed and engulfed by the entire spectacle of all the incredible stalls with so many potential career options. Great companies including Legoland, Microsoft and Mars were all happy to guide us through the ins and outs of a career in their employment sector. Many universities and colleges also assisted us in helping to decide our futures. Some of the Year 11’s signed up for summer jobs with the Year 10’s viewing a future in some of the many advertised industries. Arun Ramtale said “It opened our eyes to new horizons”. Overall, I believe it was an incredible experience that inspired us and opened our minds to many new career options to consider for a future in the world.
