Colleges Come to Willow Bank
On 4th December, Willow Bank School hosted its first ever careers fair. Representatives from a number of local post-16 education providers attended the event to offer information on local colleges, training providers and apprenticeships. Year 10 and 11 students had the chance to talk to providers about the courses they offer, what support might be available and the careers that these courses can lead on to. School staff and parents were also invited to attend. Feedback from students, parents and staff was extremely positive with many students feeling that they have a much better idea of what is available locally when they leave school. We hope that this can become an annual event in the school’s calendar.
