In January 2020 we held our first whole school Careers fair with over 80 individuals from businesses, our alumni and further education institutions supporting the event, with the intention of running the event bi-annually. The aim was to raise aspirations and inspire the next generation, with some students even securing work experience, apprenticeships and even jobs! Those in attendance, included BAE, Kent Police, Kent Fire, Careers at Sea, RAF, MEPA, Kent Music, Kent Law society, NHS, KCC, Winterwood Farms, Bidfood, Cougar Automation, MLM Group, Richter Associates, Santander, 659 The Salon, William Giles Chartered Accountants, Hays Recruitment, Cisco, Arts Architecture, Medical Dogs Charity, Teach in Kent, National Fruit, Cygnet Hospital, Tiger Cubs Nursery, South East Water, Strategic Marketing, Physiotherapy, Holidays by Lesley, Christchurch University, Kent University, University for Creative Arts, Maidstone Football Club and Maidstone Leisure Centre.
The value of students meeting and interacting with employers cannot be underestimated. We are delighted to have developed such strong partnerships with a wide range of employers from every sector.
