Annual careers fair returns

An indepdendent boarding and day school for girls is set to hold its annual careers fair on Wednesday February 7 from 10am.

The event, which offers post sixth form advice, will be taking place at Moreton Hall, and with  over 50 exhibitors in attendance, it is one of the largest in the region.

There will be a mixture of universities and employers attending, including Durham University, Cardiff University and Imperial College London, as well as employers such as the British Army, BBC Radio Shropshire, and Harper Collins Publishers. 

There will also be seminars running throughout the morning - Old Moretonian Georgina Lang will be giving valuable insights into the Oxbridge application process, and Phil Garner and Marcus Burnett will give insight into studying overseas. 

Local schools have also been invited to join Moreton girls to understand how to kick start their career and recognise their potential. Sessions like this are invaluable to pupils, who may be undecided on their next steps or simply need further guidance on how to achieve their goals.

The careers fair can also open them up to consider new paths, with an ever-growing number of industries and jobs available.

Head of careers at Moreton Hall Catherine Ashworth said: "We are excited to be hosting one of the largest university and careers events in the region again this year.

"It is essential for students to have the opportunity to engage face-to-face with Higher Education providers and employers if they are to make the right choices for their futures. With so many academic and vocational options to choose from, thorough research at an early age is essential.

"The event is free and open to any Year 11, 12 and 13 students in the local area, so please take advantage of the opportunity - we would be delighted to welcome you.”
