Year 9 Careers Fair

Sat, 2001-04-28 01:00

East Durham College will be hosting an exciting careers event for local Year 9 school pupils.

The careers fair has been arranged to help the pupils explore possible future careers and make their option and GCSE choices.

The College has been working in partnership with its local schools to bring together a wide range of local employers, training providers, armed forces, other further education colleges, sixth forms and universities - to help give the young people of the area as much information as possible about the options available to them when they finish school and beyond.

Pupils from Seaham, St Bedes’, Shotton Hall and Wellfield Schools will visit the careers exhibition which will take place on Tuesday 7th February at East Durham College’s Peterlee Campus on Willerby Grove.

Sally Hudson, a Vice Principal at the College, explained: “Following the success of last year’s careers fair this will be the second time we have held this event specifically for Year 9 pupils.

“It’s very important to help young people as early as possible to start thinking about what they might do after school and what career they’d like to pursue.”

The College is expecting over 700 Year 9 pupils as well as a large number of its own students to visit the event.
