Careers Fair Events

Year 8 Careers Fair

On Wednesday 30th January we held a Careers Fair for year 8 students in the main hall. We invited a variety of local businesses and Colleges in to speak with students and give them some ideas on future careers. This event is aimed to support year 8 students as they make decisions on which GCSE courses to follow in their remaining time at Northfield.

Year 10 Careers Event – Business Visits

From Tuesday 5th February – Thursday 7th February Year 10 students took part in a number of different events linked to the development of their careers. Over 240 students visited a wide range of businesses including Wilton Engineering, Suzanne Wilson Hair Design, Wynyard Hall Hotel and The Arc in Stockton. The aim of the event was to develop students’ ideas about their careers and show them the range of jobs and opportunities available to them in the local area.

The students gained from a wide range of experiences and were a credit to the school. A big thank you goes to all of the businesses allowed our students to visit and took the time to discuss careers with them.
