Pupil Networking Evening Success

We had an excellent Meet the Professionals Networking evening last week. We were extremely lucky to have 30 professionals across a range of sectors from Shipbroking to Motorsports, business start-ups to web design and I.T. to Accountancy. Sixth form pupils (and some 5th form) had the opportunity to talk to alumni, parents, and local partners about their career journeys to date. Some of the professionals have worked in a similar field for their entire careers whereas others have taken paths that have morphed into a variety of roles and sectors. These events offer pupils the chance to talk to individuals who work in an area that they may be considering or want to find out more about. It is also a chance to discover a role, function, or industry they had not yet considered, enabling them to broaden their horizons. Over recent years we have been lucky enough to have many alumni join the event including several recent leavers who have joined companies on Degree Apprenticeship schemes.

The art of networking is a skill that we hope each pupil will start to learn and to understand its importance before they enter the world of work.

A huge thank you to all the professionals and pupils for supporting the evening. 

If you are interested in being one of the professionals supporting this event in the future or other similar events, please register here and a member of the Horizons team will contact you when an opportunity arises.
