In light of the restrictions the COVID-19 pandemic placed on large events and social interaction in 2020/21, the Careers Team at KE has adapted and now provide a wealth of support and information to students via online careers events. See below for more information.
Our Alumni talk this year was held on Tuesday 29th June 2021 (via MS Teams) and was aimed at our year 12 and 13 students. We hosted a select group of ex-students who were able to talk through their individual pathways since leaving King Ed's College. The speakers offered a valuable le insight into the benefits and challenges of each of their chosen pathways inc Higher Education, Apprenticeships and Employment.
Information on each speaker can be viewed on the document below.
The Oxbridge Student and Parents Forum is aimed at early entry students considering applying to either Oxford or Cambridge universities and their parents/carers, and includes a virtual talk hosted by our Aspire co-ordinators, Nick Barley and Sue Dobson, as well as a representative from Oxbridge.

Running concurrently with the National Careers Week, the Careers Team used this week to focus on careers information, outlining a range of job roles that are open to students and highlighting online resources, videos and research. Topics covered included CV writing, competences, benefits of work experience, interview techniques.
During the week we had input from a varied cohort of industries including Law, Medicine, Healthcare, Accounting and Finance, Engineering plus many more.
The Apprenticeship Week focused on apprenticeships as a possible route students may opt to pursue after college. Resources, information and videos highlighted professions that make apprenticeships available. We will also looked at the levels of apprenticeships and where to search.
The Higher Education Week highlighted the breadth of courses and institutions that students could consider. We looked at how to go about researching students options, the variety of considerations, and where further study could lead.
We hosted a range of virtual interactions with higher education institutions.
