Year 8 Careers and Future Pathway Event

On Tuesday 13th February, Thornleigh Salesian College held its annual Year 8 Careers and Future Pathway event.

Over 20 local and national employers, universities and apprenticeship providers were interviewed by our students in school in order for them to gain a more in depth knowledge of a variety of careers and further education pathways.
The aim of the day was to also give students an increased confidence in speaking to adults, raise aspirations and to feel more informed in taking the necessary steps towards their future career.
The day was part of a supportive process to ensure students are prepared and fully informed to enable them to make the appropriate choices to maximize their full potential.
We would like to thank the following employers and organisations for attending this event:
Al Fresco Holidays
Department for Work and Pensions
Alliance Learning
Public Health England
Skills Company
Royal Air Force
Kier Construction
Oona Banner - Careers Advisor
Manchester City Council
Greater Manchester Police
Education Training Partnership
