Lancing's annual Careers Fair

On 11 November, the Fifth Form, new Lower Sixth pupils, and parents came together to take part in the annual Lancing Careers Fair.

The Saturday morning session has become increasingly popular, building on the Futures Programme started in the Third and Fourth Forms. The event provides a valuable opportunity to get some advice about possible future careers from OLs and other industry experts. Pupils and parents chose from a varied selection of workshops, including:

  • Architecture
  • Science
  • Music
  • Finance
  • Employability
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Media and journalism
  • Law
  • Marketing
  • Media
  • Veterinary
  • Teaching
  • Theatre
  • Estate Management

In the workshops, expert speakers talked about their careers, roles and specialisms. They advised pupils on how to get started, how to progress in these fields, specifically giving guidance on routes into Higher Education and work experience. 

Commenting on the event, Assistant Head (Pastoral) Dan Connolly said “Feedback from the day has been really positive with pupils and parents commenting on the quality of the information provided and how this has really opened up ideas and conversations to follow up. This term the Fifth Form has also been involved in our Futurewise project where they start to understand and recognise how their skills and interests can be applied to future careers options.”
