On Wednesday, June 15th, the main hall at Acklington Road became a buzzing hub for JCSC Careers Fair. Representatives from an impressive range of employers, apprenticeship providers, colleges and universities packed into the hall, where they were visited throughout the day by inquisitive students.
Each year group had the opportunity to come and chat with our visitors, moving between stalls to ask questions and complete activities. Our teachers also spent time meeting with our guests, identifying future curriculum collaboration opportunities.
The well-attended event, was organised in partnership with North East Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) . We’re pleased to report that JCSC Careers Fair 2022 provided lots of leads and inspiration for our students.

Lucy Johnson, Enterprise Coordinator at North East Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), said:
“I was delighted to support the school to arrange the Careers Fair, which provided an opportunity for local businesses to inspire the next generation and help provide an insight to opportunities on students’ doorstep. It is now even more important than ever that young people have exposure to and insight from the world of work. This Careers Fair offered the opportunity for pupils to have meaningful encounters with local and regional employers.”
