How can you support Careers, Employabilty and Enterprise Education at St Albans Girls' School?
During the year we host two careers fairs in the evening (one in Autumn Term and one in the Spring Term), a mock interview day for all Year 11 students in January each year, and on International Women's Day (8 March) we host a speed networking event for students in Year 8. Each of these provide our students with the chance to talk to and learn directly from employers so that they can learn more about the world of work.
As well as this the school participates in various enterprise competitions and events throughout the year.
Below is a practical guide prepared by the Careers and Enterprise Company and CBI which will provide you with ideas and examples of additional ways that you can support the careers development of our students.
