Year 11 Trip to Somerset Careers Fair 2019

On the 10th of October Year 11 students from Court Fields had the pleasure of visiting the careers fair in Taunton. This year saw the long standing event move from Junction 24 at Bridgwater to the Somerset County Cricket Ground. There were plenty of employers, apprenticeship providers, armed services and educational institutions present to offer a whole range of advice and guidance to our young people. One student commented on how they had found a path to help realise their dream of working in the animal welfare sector at a post 18 level, other students felt the range of providers was exactly what they needed, particularly the colleges and universities with plenty of expert guidance on hand.
