Year 11 - Ask the Professional
A successful networking event was held which provided support from potential employers and further education organisations.
On Monday 3rd October Severn Vale School invited 28 employers / colleges / 6th forms / universities to an Ask the Professional Event careers event at school. The “Ask the Professional” networking event provided students the opportunity to ask employers about what they are looking for in new recruits and what makes an application form / good candidate stand out for them. Year 11s also got to ask colleges, 6th Forms and universities about the courses they offer, and the application processes involved in applying to their institutes.
It was great to see a number of ex-SVS students representing their companies at the event, amongst them was Ed Adamson (Ex-Head Boy) who represented Microsoft.
Feedback from both exhibitors and students was really positive with one student saying that they came into the hall on Monday with no idea what they wanted to do after SVS and left knowing that they wanted to do a construction course at either SGS or Glos Coll. Other students learnt about apprenticeship opportunities they didn't know existed and A'levels they hadn't considered studying. A huge thank you to all our Year 11s for being such great ambassadors for SVS during the event.
