Careers Fair Years 10 and 12 25th June periods 4 and 5

On 25th June , year 10 and 12 will be off timetable periods 4 and 5 to attend 2 careers related workshops  delivered by employers.We have sent you a google form to fill in to choose which workshops you can  attend. Because there are many of you, can you select 4 from the form in order of preference ? We will do our very best to give you your first two choices but it is not always possible. On the form you can click on a link which takes you to a list of the workshops and their descriptions. You will need to read these carefully before you  choose your top 4 . You will not be able to change your choices after you have completed the form, so make sure you choose carefully. The deadline for this is 24th May, after this date we cannot guarantee we will be able to give you your choices and may allocate you to any workshops with remaining spaces.

Thanks , any question, please ask
