Pupils from Forms 5 to 7 were invited to attend the annual Careers Fair, which took place just before the half-term break. The School hosted representatives from 30 different professions ranging from the law, property, investment banking, the Diplomatic Service and healthcare including medicine, physiotherapy, radiography and midwifery.
Careers & Middle School Administrator Helen Elliot said, “This was another successful Careers Fair at Oakham and a wonderful opportunity for students to meet with local and national employers to help think about their future beyond School. It was also a pleasure to receive such great comments from the visitors about our students’ engagement and focus. Thank you to all the individuals and businesses involved. ”
The School works closely with external partners and contacts, as well as its extensive alumni network, to introduce students to careers and work experience. Numerous additional events are hosted each year, including a HE Fair, a Science Guest Night, Careers Week, and University Day. To find out more about the Careers Department at Oakham click here.
