Careers trips and Events at PRS

2022-2023

 Year 12 Speed Networking

                                 

As part of an off-timetable day for our Year 12s, we invited 15 local and national companies to take part in our Speed Networking Event.  All Year 12 students were invited to take part in this networking opportunity.  Each student prepared their own questions for the companies with the aim to gain a better understanding of entry requirements for professions and typical workload.  With our ever growing Sixth Form, we were able to use both the Hall and Sixth Form Study Centre for the two hour event. 

Companies who took part: FCC Environment, Bucks CC, MoD, Ercol, Fremantle, APM, CPM, NHS, ViiVHealth Care, Pepsico, Independent Mortgage Solutions, DMC Advantage, Zenopa, Raven Social, Lightfoots Solicitors. 

Year 12 Student Voice:

"There are lots of different career paths I can go down just by taking one subject"

"I found the information I needed to do the course I wanted to do"

"There are many jobs that will suit you you just have to look into them more"

"The key learning outcome from the session was that all jobs contain a wide network of jobs within each other"

This will be an annual event for our Sixth Form, if you are part of an organisation who would like to be involved in next years event or similar Careers events please contact lredrup@prsbucks.com.

 

Year 11 Guidance Interview

Tim Swithenbank has this term joined our Careers Team at PRS as a Level 6 qualified Careers Adviser.  He will offer an impartial career advice and guidance meeting to all year 11 students this academic year and careers groupwork sessions for our Year 8 students.  This 1-2-1 personal guidance meeting will give all students the opportunity to explore their post-16 options and future careers. 

Student Voice:

"It was very clear and showed how I can access different websites and which websites to use that focused on what I was interested in, even though originally I had no clue. This session helped me to focus my search more and to see what was available with the grades I'm likely to get and what route I would like to go down. It was very focused and specific to my interest/ subject and to what I said"

"Very nice gentleman who was able to give me additional information about the industry I want to work in. He also showed me some extra qualifications that I could gain that might help me get into the industry."

All year 11 students will be offered a careers interview this year.  Please check your emails for your appointment time, your tutor will also inform you ahead of the meeting.

 

The Right Honourable Sir David Liddington, former Deputy Prime Minister and Lord Chancellor came to talk to our A Level Politics classes. He was able to support their learning about British Government through his knowledge of the parliamentary process, from his time as a backbench MP right up to his appointment to senior ministerial positions. The students came prepared with many excellent questions.
