We recently held a Humanities Careers Fayre. This is the first time we have held an event focused on a subject area. Our aim was to raise awareness of further study, apprenticeships and careers linked to Humanities subjects, in particular History and Geography.

We had a wide range of providers participating, they included – The National trust, Studley Castle, Worcester University, The Albany Theatre, Royal Town Planning Institute, Amazing Apprenticeships, HS2, Aunty Jen productions, Shakespeare’s England and a representative from the Redditch Standard. It was great to see some local and national businesses for our pupils to engage with.

Year 9 and 10 pupils from Studley attended and year 10 pupils from Ridgeway also had the opportunity to come along. They all spent time going a4round the fair and talking to the exhibitors. There may have been one or two freebies given out as well! Pupils gained a lot of insight into what careers are available and we hope this helps them as they start to consider their post 16 options.
