Christ the King's "Careers Island" Conference 2018

The Careers Conference at Christ the King Sixth Form: Emmanuel continues to go from strength to strength. The cross-site event comprises a variety of university and career based talks as well as a large-scale exhibition. The day provides a fantastic opportunity for our Level 3 students to start thinking about their future and to explore their options. As in previous years, a separate Level 1 & 2 Careers Conference was held at CTK: Aquinas which offered specific support to students studying a BTEC Level 1 or 2 course.

Students prepare for the Conference by pre-booking their places for the talks they wish to attend and individual timetables are created which include a visit to the exhibition, thus ensuring their time spent at the Conference is focussed and productive.

Over 80 external organisations supported the Conference by either exhibiting or providing speakers for the talks.  Many of the participants were returning, having attended the event in previous years.  The programme of talks included sessions on a wide range of careers from Medicine and the NHS to entrepreneurship, journalism, engineering, banking and many more.
