Futures and Skills Evening

Last night's Futures and Skills Evening was a resounding success. The evening, entitled 'Your Future Starts Here' aimed to help our pupils make difficult decisions about their future. Advice, work experience and internships are all a vital part of decision making regarding future careers and Clifton High School endeavours to do all it can to support our pupils in finding these opportunities. 

The night began with a short UCAS presentation for Year 12 regarding the university admissions process, which was followed by a series of presentations for Years 9-12. Presentations were given by professionals working in a range of sectors. Pupils had a chance to pick the speakers they wished to hear in advance to ensure that they could find out more about potential career paths which specifically interest them. The fifteen minute talks covered aspects of each speaker's field such as the day-to-day nature of their jobs, and what qualifications, research or work experience will help pupils enter, and excel in, their chosen field. 

Talks were given by experts in the management, finance, creative design, IT, languages, law, medicine and science sectors, amongst other areas.
