CDS Careers Fair 2019

Posted on: 27/02/2019

The School hosted its’ debut careers event in partnership with EBP Kent.   The “Exhibition Fair” welcomed 46 stands and the attendance of 80 employees.  A full range of sectors were targeted to cater to as many aspirations as possible and highlight work opportunities not previously thought of by the numerous students who visited the Fair. The Exhibition Fair took place throughout the School day with each year group given allocated slots to visit and look round.

Students were delighted with the amount of high quality and interactive activities available, from hairdressing to animal management.  Students were well informed about all of the services provided and enjoyed all of the stationary, key rings, bags and other free gifts.

Students were exceptional and the School received glowing reports from all staff and exhibitors.

The aim of the Fair was to raise student awareness about the careers and courses available to them and to provide them with a worthwhile exhibition of careers opportunities.

Below are just some of the comments received from exhibitors and students about how they found the Fair:

‘The students were very interactive and a credit to the school. Very interested in finding out about careers. By far the best school I have visited, doing a Fair’



‘All of the stands I would have wanted to speak to were here. It’s been a very useful experience.’



‘An amazing event which we are thankful to be a part of. The students were engaging and asked lots of questions’



‘Exceptionally well catered for and organised. Definitely one of the best Fairs I have been to’
