Midland Academies Trust

Careers Events secures new Trust Partners

Despite yellow diversion signs telling you to “stop and go back” many determined post 16 education providers and a wide range of high quality employers made their way to the Nuneaton Academy for their Careers event on Tuesday October 18th

Students from  Year 9, 10 and 11 students from “the Academy” took advantage of the opportunity to talk to all the local “sixth form” providers as well as the chance to talk to the forces recruitment staff and  Businesses who offer high quality apprenticeships in the area.  Exhibitors were kept busy throughout the evening with a steady stream of young people to talk to.  At the end of the event three high profile employers had added their names to the list of top employers happy to partner the trust in a range of activities

Post 16 teachers, Army and RAF staff rubbed shoulders with colleagues from Aldi, BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, Severn Trent and the Coventry Building Society to give the students a wide range of people to talk to and bags full of information to take away with them.

The biggest stand of the night was taken by North Warwickshire and Hinckley College.  Gaynor Catlow from the college apprenticeship team noted “the students were very well informed and we are delighted to have been invited back to the Academy, to further develop awareness of apprenticeships as a route into the world of work.”

Organisers Jackie Buckle and Claire Cooke had extended the invitation to attend to George Eliot and Hartshill School’s and it was good to see that this had been accepted by a small but significant number of students.
