Alumni Careers Day

The 2020 event

Here at KES Sixth Form we are planning our 2nd 'Alumni Careers Day'. 

Last year, we welcomed a great group of former students to come to school and inspire our Year 12s (17 year olds) with short career talks, as well as an inspirational key note speaker.

Our 2021 event will be held in early February, but will of course have to be virtual.

We are looking for former students who would be willing to record a 10 minute career talk to camera covering:

  • What career are they in
  • What is that area/career like. Typical day to day picture? 
  • How did they get into that career? 
  • Have they always done that job or have they changed careers over time?
  • What extra activities have supported them getting that job? Volunteering ? 
  • What messages they would give to their 17 year old self? 

We are looking for a wide range of career areas, but as a guide ideally we'd like:

Medicine, nursing, teaching, business & accounting, finance, PR/media, psychologists, manufacturing, journalism/English, law, sports, engineering, architecture, the Arts.

If you are interested in taking part, please email Abi Merritt with your job title/careers area, and we will get back to you in January to make arrangements. If you are particularly keen to be the inspirational key note speaker, please indicate this.

Many thanks for taking an interest in our students and their future careers.
