Worth was delighted to welcome a number of guest speakers to the School last week to deliver a range of fascinating talks to Year 12 students at our annual Careers Fair.
Speakers included a number of Worthians and Worth parents, representing a diverse range of industries including consultant orthopaedic surgeon James Ritchie, lawyer Mike Rebeiro, Dr Daniel Grace who talked about careers in medicine generally, vet Charlie Parker plus adventurer, scientist and entrepreneur Neil Laughton, who was also able to talk about his time in the SAS.
Further talks came from Tom Taverner on physiotherapy and robotics, sports media executive Max Barnett on his journey since leaving Worth and Hugo Sutton on a career in the Armed Forces. Niall Quinn, who took a degree apprenticeship at Rolls-Royce after leaving Worth, discussed apprenticeships while careers advisor/employability coach and trainer Carl Jackson delivered a series of talks.
Completing the two-day programme Head of Sixth Form, Mr Matthew Doggett, gave a UCAS talk and Pia Middleton talked about teaching English to monks in Nepal thanks to a Global Action Award, which are available to Worthians through our alumni association, Worth Society.
The event was part of Worth’s programme to support all Sixth Form students with preparing for life after the School, be that university applications or general careers advice.
