S4 Careers Convention

Pupils enjoyed the annual S4 Careers Convention held at Beaton Road recently, with dozens of consultants giving advice on different occupations. 

The pupils had the opportunity to meet with up to six consultants on the evening to have informal conversations with each of them about what their career involves. 

The School Association arranged for 85 consultants to attend the event, covering 59 different career areas, including marine biology, veterinary medicine, broadcasting, engineering, stockbroking, product design and law. 

The evening had a fantastic atmosphere with the pupils engaged and excited to be thinking about their future. 

On the evening, pupil Marcus Arbon said: “The Careers Convention is a great opportunity for students to hear first-hand about a wide variety of study and career options.

"The consultants gave pupils a better insight into the daily lives of the careers to which they aspire to. It is a great opportunity that all students should take advantage of.”

Many of the consultants were either parents or FPs, and the school is extremely grateful to them for giving their time so generously. 

If you would be interested in being involved in this event in the future, please contact Miss Chisholm on careers@hutchesons.org.
