Careers quiz for Parkside students

They welcomed employees from a range of companies involved in the digital, finance, law and transport sectors.

The event was organised for year seven and nine students as part of the Parkside’s Aspire2B programme.

Before the event, students were given time to carry out research into different companies so they could think of relevant questions.

The questions ranged from ‘What GCSEs/A levels did you study and are they relevant in your current job?’ to ‘What is the worst job you have ever done?’ and ‘What are your future aspirations?’.

Assistant Head Jo Sykes said "The employees were really challenged in regards to some of the questions, but always gave open and honest answers.

“Our students enjoyed the opportunity to seek advice on possible career pathways, to ask genuine questions that interested them and to listen to different points of view.

“As always the employees were extremely impressed with the positive attitude of our students and the way they conducted themselves in such an open forum. This was a fantastic event that we hope to replicate next year.”
