6th Form Careers event at The Crystal Conference Centre
On 18th December, a number of The Warren 6th form students were given a wonderful opportunity to attend careers fair and conference at The Crystal Conference Centre, located in the Royal Docks. The event was hosted by the Teach First Programme and it enabled students to gain an insight into the business structures of large companies, such as Vodafone and Google.
‘We all had the opportunity to meet and have a question and answer sessions with various employees from variety of different companies such as: PWC, Google and Vodafone. We heard about the working culture, benefits and opportunities within such a large organisation. For example, I learnt about the qualifications required for their apprenticeships. We were able to speak to existing interns and to gain a personal insight into their experiences. Similarly, PWC also offered us suggestions of a summer work experience. Overall I enjoyed the trip because it gave me an insight of different careers, sectors and what is needed. It also reinforced the importance to do the best I possibly can, in all I do and aim for the highest possible grades.’
