We held our annual Careers Fair on Wednesday 1 February and what a bustling success it was! Our 6th Form and Key-stage 4 students dropped in throughout the day to find out about both national and local employment, apprenticeship and further college based-study opportunities. Companies and organisations who came along and contributed to the success included: TR Fastenings, Buxted Park Hotel, Candlelight HomeCare, CPJ Field Funerals, The Youth Employability Service, NHS Careers, Sussex Police, Sussex Apprenticeships, The Armed Forces, Ibstock, Plumpton College, Hadlow College and Sussex Downs College.
During the event our students picked up detailed information and advice and had the opportunity to chat one to one with people from this wide range of organisations. Although the majority of UCTC students progress onto study in our sixth form and then move onto University, we are dedicated to ensuring that all of our students take the career pathways most appropriate to them. Our Careers fair is part of the ongoing package of careers advice and support that we provide. For some students work-based apprenticeships or further study in local specialist colleges is the best next step for them after UCTC, and we want to make sure they have lots of opportunities at UCTC to become fully informed about all of the options open to them.
