Careers Evening Success

Great Success at Careers Event Thursday 23 January 2020

Ripley St Thomas Careers department worked diligently to deliver a fabulous Careers Information Evening on Thursday 23 January in the Sixth Form Centre.

We welcomed a diverse range of employers and FE/HE providers to advise, present and discuss career and job opportunities with pupils and their families from Year 9 upwards.

"This is amazing! We never had this in such detail when I was at school, it makes me wish I was younger and could make these choices all over again!"  exclaimed a parent of a pupil in Year 10.

We would like to thank the 40+ employers who devoted their time to the school and came along with a wealth of information and goody bags to take away, delivering detailed scheduled talks and meeting with individuals throughout the evening. They include:

*Ripley Teaching Alliance (School-centred Initial Teacher Training in both primary and secondary areas); Lancaster Medical School; Booths;*Deloitte; Connect 2 Cleanrooms; *Nike; Like Technologies; *Army; Navy; Royal Air Force; Halifax; Lancaster Training Services; *Police; Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service; Jo and Cass; Bowker Electrical; Bowker I.T.; JTL Training; Scott Wilkinson Chartered Accountants; *Oglethorpe, Sturton and Gillibrand Solicitors; English Lakes Hotels; *Jaguar Land Rover; *EDF; Lanes Vets; Ripley St Thomas Sixth Form; *Myerscough College; Lancaster and Morecambe College; University of Cumbria; Environment Agency; Careers Advice and Guidance - Miss Kirkbride;  Lancaster University; *BAE Systems; Bright Horizons Lancaster Day Nursery - Early Years' Provision; University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust - Careers and Engagement Team, Biochemistry, Maxillofacial & Dentistry, Microbiology, Nursing, Radiography, Speech and Language, Midwifery.
