National Careers Week

During National Careers Week, we were thrilled to host talks and events aimed at inspiring our pupils to explore diverse career paths. Throughout the week, we welcomed 19 visitors to our school, who shared their unique career journeys and participated in a Speed Networking event alongside pupils from both KEHS and KES.

Read below an account from our Head of Careers, Mrs Cuthbert.

What a busy and interesting week National Careers Week was this year! We are incredibly grateful to the 19 visitors who came in to school to share their career pathways and take part in a Speed Networking event with the students at KEHS and KES. Over the course of the week students heard about all sorts of different roles including law, urban planning, setting up a pottery business, being a patent attorney, studying veterinary medicine, curating exhibitions, the ‘Know Your Client’ roles at Deutsche Bank and much more.  

 A common theme was that many speakers had ‘squiggly’ careers with twists and turns, changing their choices and responding to different circumstances. This reinforced how important it is to know what our key skills and strengths are, and to remain adaptable and resilient. 

Thank you to all our speakers, whether Old Eds, parents or visitors, we are privileged to hear your career stories and always so happy to welcome you in to school. Many students have given me positive feedback and said how helpful and interesting they found it.
