National Careers Week – 7th – 11th March 2016

National Careers Week – 7th – 11th March 2016

It’s a busy time for Careers Education at Torpoint Community College. Students in years 10, 11 and 12 recently attended the Pathways to Health Exhibition in Truro to find out about careers in healthcare.

Plymouth University Medical Students have visited the College to run a workshop for interested students from year 10 and up. The Coldstream Guards Army Engagement Team visited to work with students. Year 10 students worked with Barclays Lifeskills Coaches during PSHEe lessons to work on their CVs. Assemblies about Apprenticeships and the benefits of going to University are planned for Careers week. We have upcoming trips to the Careers Show at Plymouth Pavilions and an event called Britain Needs Scientists at Exeter University as well as talks from employers to students in lessons so watch this space.

Please check out the CareerPilot website to do some more careers research as it is never too early to start planning and setting goals.
