Be part of Durrington High's Career Week!

Be part of Durrington High's Career Week!

Durrington Careers Week is set to take place w/c 10th June. If you’re an employer we want you to meet the talent of the future and if you’re an education centre we want you to meet your future students. In both cases you have an opportunity to inspire young people by sharing what you do and the amazing directions it could take them. It’s always an exciting week!

The three activities we have available this year are…

Lunchtime stands 

Your business or the sector you are representing will be assigned a table in our main mall which you can set-up to showcase what you do. You can arrive from 1:00pm and you should be out by 2:15pm. The students will be with you for around 30-35 minutes. School staff will be present throughout.

Classroom spotlights 

You choose which curriculum areas you would like to visit - It can bean area that your sector  targets or a broader lesson that you value. Alternatively you canleave the choice to us. We will take you into classrooms for you to give a 5 minute talk about who you are, the sector you represent and what your area could offer them. This will be followed by a 5 minute opportunity for a Q&A. You will be accompanied as you go round and interactivity is welcomed.

Focussed talks  This is an area we will explore. Potentially a chance for you to meet with a larger targeted audience in our brand new auditorium. We would love to put together a few employers or colleges to run a Healthcare or Engineering based session for example. No commitment yet but if there is interest we will do it.

A word on interactivity - For the stands and classroom visits we encourage interactive activities. Past years have featured competitions, giveaways, quizzes, robots, small animals, dancing, demonstrations, VR, cocktail making, dress up and more, but of course you being there and connecting with the students is the most important thing. Even bringing some props or items from your industry can be a real conversation starter. We encourage businesses to take part on multiple days so that students don’t miss out but of course if only one day is possible that is still amazing.

Lunchtime stands - 1:35pm for 30 minutes Monday -Thursday
