Friday 17th June is poised to be an exciting day for Joseph Chamberlain Sixth Form College as it opens its doors to over 80 professionals, who will speak to the College’s students about their own careers and the day to day work involved in their particular role. The aim of the Careers Fair is to inform over 800 first year students of the array of career paths open to them and to help them consider their options post-College.
Professionals visiting the College will range from doctors, lawyers, dentists, CEOs, business directors, engineers, entrepreneurs, physiotherapists, public service personnel and workers in the arts, to name a few, who have offered a morning from their busy schedules to discuss the ins and outs of their industries, qualification requirements and provide advice for students interested in entering their fields. In a change to the usual style of Fair, professionals will be delivering five, twenty minute sessions to groups of students. Each student will visit five different speakers and gain valuable insight into a range of possible career paths for when they leave College.
Earlier this year the College’s Careers Officer, Jasvinder Lall, received The Quality Award in Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) at Gold standard; the highest accreditation available.
This will be the largest Careers Fair that Joseph Chamberlain College has organised and the College anticipates that it will be the largest of its kind in Birmingham to-date. There is a real sense of excitement around the College as they look forward to what is set to be a fantastic event for its students and visitors.
