2nd November 2023 The Priory Witham Academy Careers Fair

As part of our commitment to providing our students with opportunities to raise aspirations, develop employability skills and make informed choices about their futures, we are back to holding our annual Careers Fair

We have over 30 organisations attending the Careers Fair with employers, colleges, training providers, universities and ambassadors from a wide range of business professions all represented.  Over the course of the day all students (Year 6 to Year 13) will have the opportunity to attend the Careers Fair to speak to representatives from these organisations about the skills, qualifications and experiences that they need to be successful in further learning and employment.  

Ongoing Specsavers Apprenticeships

At Specsavers, we believe in growing our own. Our apprenticeships provide firm foundations for lifelong careers in Optometry and Audiology. Fields that are dynamic, rewarding and constantly evolving. In practical terms this means hands-on learning and preparation for those all-important next steps. Something our 600 apprentices certainly appreciate. Growing our talent.
