Teesside High School Careers Convention

Monday 14 January 2019 | By Samantha Hockney

Each year we host a highly successful Careers Convention at Teesside High School, and we would like to invite pupils, parents, families and the wider community to come along once more. The event will be held in our Senior School Hall on Tuesday 29 January, 6.00pm-8.00pm.

Our marketplace-style event is attended by over 30 universities, training providers and local businesses, providing up-to-date and relevant advice for careers guidance. The following professions will be represented: Archaeology, Armed Forces, Dance and Performance, Dentistry, Engineering, Graphic Design, Journalism, Law, Manufacturing, Medicine, Pharmacy, Sport, Teaching, Veterinary Science and much more.

  • For students in Year 9, this will be the first opportunity to gather information about a broad range of careers which should help to form the basis of option choices for GCSE.
  • For students in Years 10 and 11, this is an opportunity to both further develop their thoughts on future careers and to start to think about options for post-16 study.
  • Year 12 students should use this event to prepare for the UCAS applications that they will be making in Year 13. University Admissions Officers will be on hand to offer advice on the background of different universities and the range of courses available.

We live in an ever more competitive world and to increase their prospects and chances of success, students need to ensure that they stand out from the crowd. Networking and gathering contacts amongst the delegates at the Careers Convention will enable students to broaden their knowledge, secure work experience placements, help gain entry to university or secure higher and advanced level apprenticeships.

Booking is not required; we look forward to seeing you there.
