The third week of the new Spring term saw the return of the annual KGV Careers Convention. This popular career exploration event saw representatives from universities, a wide range of employers and volunteer agencies come to talk to year 12 students about their opportunities post KGV.

This year’s event attracted universities from places as diverse as Newcastle University, Kings College London and the Open University as well as more local colleges including Hugh Baird, Myerscough, Blackburn and performance college Liverpool Media Academy.

Representatives from The Armed Forces, The Police, the NCS Network, Kier Construction, NJSR Architects, Grant Thornton, The Chartered Institute for I.T, the Royal Town Planning Institute, representatives from local primary schools and Juice FM talked to students about specific careers.

Gap year opportunity organisations Latitude, Projects Abroad and BSES, Study Abroad advisers A Star Future and Liverpool education organisation Euro Club Schools gave students all the information they could need for work and volunteering opportunities in this country and abroad.   And to top it off, we hosted a number of teams from the NHS including the Liverpool Community Health Team, Southport Community Dental Clinic and the department of Radiography at Southport Hospital. All of these organisations, plus others, gave us a great buzz on the day.

Students attended the afternoon in their droves and received a wealth of information, advice and guidance from our visitors, plus their own Careers Service at KGV, with Careers Officer Holly Jones and Coordinator Holly Mannion. Overall the day was a huge success and enjoyed by all, as it remains the biggest event on the KGV Careers calendar.
