Pupils given a taste of their future at The King's School Careers Fair

Pupils at The King's School were given a chance to get a taste of life after education at their annual Careers Fair.

More than 30 county-based employers and training providers attended the Fair, giving the pupils inspiration and information about options available to them when they turn 18.

All pupils from Year 6 upwards visited the 36 trade stands and quizzed the delegates on career opportunities.

The Fair forms part of the school's aim to not only provide an outstanding learning environment, but to guide pupils as they plan for the future.

The Careers Fair is just on part of that strategy and runs alongside a series of careers lunches where industry experts talk to sixth form pupils about opportunities open to them.

Last month the visiting speaker was author, and King's alumnus, Richard Hardie while Mark Owen, MD of Moose Marketing and PR and editor of Punchline-Gloucester.com will be the guest at the next event.

The companies attending The King's School Careers Fair were: Institute of Chartered Accountants, National Apprenticeship Services, Stride Treglown Ltd, Royal Air Force, Royal Navy, Army Careers, Lloyd Bank, Thomas Franks Ltd, Gloucestershire College, Hartpury University & College, Hereford College of Arts, South Gloucestershire College, GCHQ, University of Gloucestershire, Cyber Security Associates, GE Aviation, Renishaw, Safran Landing Systems, St James's Place, SLG Brands, Gloucestershire Health & Care NHS Foundation Trust, Calcot Manor, Chartered Institute of Insurance, Charles Russell Speechlys, Moose Marketing, Gloucestershire Constabulary, Association for Project Management, The History Press, Arup, Bruton Knowles, Eurolink Connect, The Roses Theatre, Bridge Training, Engage in Gloucester, GFirstLEP.
