Bradley Stoke Community School

National Careers/Apprenticeship Week

The 4th – 8th March is National Careers/Apprenticeship Week. We will be running a whole host of activities this week to inspire and engage pupils to think about their futures and careers journey.

We have speakers coming in to assemblies for each year group and those employers will be staying behind to talk to students who are really interested in careers in that area. The spaces for the additional workshop will be open to ALL year groups but spaces in these will be allocated on a first come first served basis. If you are interested in these spaces please email me. There will be 20 places for each session These opportunities are also open to all post 16 students.
