In March 2016 we really made an effort to create a timetable of informative, inspiring and incredible people (including some ex students!) who have all succeeded in their chosen career.
Whether they have started their own business, worked for their dream company or pursued their passions and interests and then turned them into a job, National Careers Week had it all at the Studio School!
Students had the opportunity to sign up for a variety of talks and presentations, all of which are shown in the timetable below. You can download this file from the link at the bottom of the page.
National Careers Week opened my eyes to the many opportunities which the world of work has to offer. I decided to test out as many talks as possible to get a feel for the all the different experiences which were available. I attended presentations such as: Leeds College of Art, Apprenticeship Finder, Entrepreneurship and many more.
Hearing from real life businesses gave me the perspective of careers and university courses which will use my personal skills for a career which I enjoy. Although this has made my choices even harder to make with the vast opportunites available. The week showed me that you don’t have to set yourself on one path and you can take many other paths before you find the job which suits your skill set. As we heard from teachers at the Studio School I realised they all had different goals before becoming a teacher.
Keeping that in mind I feel like I can keep my options open before making a set decision on what career line I want to go down. Each individual talk gave me the confidence to look at different courses in both university and apprenticeships.
