Careers Fair Inspires Students
The Cardinal in college

We were extremely fortunate to welcome a wide range of esteemed employment, apprenticeship and education providers to our annual Apprenticeship and Careers Event.

Over 750 students explored the fair and learned more about the fantastic pathways that their studies may lead to; some of which they had not previously considered.

Carl McKenzie-Brown from BAE Systems said, “It’s exciting to see people at the beginning of the journey into their chosen careers. The students were asking valid, informed questions and taking ownership of the opportunities available to them thanks to this event.”

We appreciate the level of encouragement and enthusiasm with which the representatives approached our students and hope that the event inspires many more SJR success stories!

Claire Mills from Stephenson’s Solicitors commented, “The event has been an excellent opportunity for students and Stephenson’s to develop new working relationships. We have had some fantastic past students from St John Rigby College join our apprenticeship scheme who are now permanent, full time employees. We hope to see this continue and have already met some strong candidates we would be delighted to work with in the future.”

We have our fingers crossed that these newly established working relationships will flourish, as our students prepare to take the next steps into employment and Higher Education.
