We held our first 'Careers Cafe' on Wednesday 7 October for students in all years based on Creative Arts, Media,Journalism, Drama and Music during the extended tutor time from 8.30-9.30am, in our College Hall. 

We had a fantastic attendance of people coming into school from different skilled areas covering their professions in Graphic Design, Acting, Social Media, Television work, Journalism, Fine Art, Gallerist, Curator, Musical Theatre, Voice Coaching, Theatre Production and Stage Management and Music Production.  They brought along a wealth of experience and advice that they shared with the students.

The visitors were very supportive and motivational and encouraged the students to be determined to follow their chosen career paths and not to be disheartened if they see challenges ahead.   All students had the opportunity to meet with our professional guests, to questions and discuss their areas of expertise.  The sessions last an hour and give our students an insight into different areas they may not have considered before, helping and supporting them when making path choices for the future in career areas.

Mr Curtis, who coordinates the speakers, said “Education is a conversation between generations and this was a great opportunity for students to talk to highly experienced and talented adults from an array of professions in Creative Arts, Drama and Music”.

Lisa Millard, Assistant Principal, said “We have had a fantastic response to this project from a variety of professional people offering our students support in their respective areas.  We were overwhelmed by the amount of students who were so enthusiastic to come along and discuss many career areas. The feedback has been very positive and we look forward to building on this success for many future sessions”. 

Principal, Mr Ball thanked the guests for giving their time freely to help the next generation gain a sense of purpose and hope for the future, the support is invaluable and gives the students a real insight into their next step.

We will be covering a wide variety of careers and different areas of expertise in each session.  The next Careers Café will take place on Wednesday 25 November from 8.45 - 9.30am in the Main Hall, where the theme will be Business, Enterprise, IT, Legal, Finance and Insurance.
