Pupils in Year 11 and Lower Sixth (Year 13) attended the annual fair that offers our pupils the opportunity to learn about different careers and to ask practitioners questions about their experience. This is a valuable opportunity for the pupils to think about their career options and to learn about areas that they may not previously have considered.
The keynote speaker, Professor Mushtak Al-Atabi, Provost & CEO at Heriot-Watt University Malaysia, gave an inspiring talk about the nature of future careers. He explained the importance of emotional and social capital, especially in the digital age, and the centrality of identifying purpose in our pathways.
Following the keynote speech, the options included architecture, medicine, law, psychology, veterinary science, as well as entrepreneurship and project management.
