Apprenticehip Fair for Year 10 Pupils

Dear Parents/Carers

Apprenticehip Fair for Year 10 Pupils

On Tuesday 16th January the above event is taking place in Crawley at the Civic Hall, please see the flyer attached to here for full details.

We would like to give our Year 10 pupils the opportunity to attend the event and will therefore be letting them finish school at 3pm on the day, to give them time to make their own way there.  Of course, they can only leave with your permission, and on the understanding that they are attending the event.  School staff will be at the event to monitor the attendance.  The event isn’t just for pupils and you are welcome to attend with your child.  Our expectation is that any pupils who do not want to attend, will remain in school and continue with the rest of the school day.

There will be a large number of employers in attendance (listed below) along with the National Careers Service and West Sussex Careers Advisors, there will also be several current Apprentices in attendance.  We feel this would be an excellent opportunity for our pupils to learn about the range of options available to them.
