The UCL Academy Careers Fair – Thursday 24th January
We were delighted to hold our first ever Careers Fair last night (Thursday 24th January). Over 45 high profile organisations joined over 400 students and parents for what was a wonderful, inspiring evening.
The Academy’s Chair of Governors, Professor Lucie Green, opened the Fair, urging students to be open to new ideas and to think creatively about their future. With a range of organisations exhibiting, including The Francis Crick Institute, KPMG and the Academy’s sponsor, UCL, among many others, students were blown away by of the wonderful career opportunities that were open to them. Exhibitors were also very complimentary about the Academy students and the quality of dialogue and conversations that they had.
Mr Robin Street, Co-Principal, was thrilled with the number of students and parents that attended, saying that ‘it gave a real insight into the appetite and interest our student population has in broadening their horizons and thinking deeply about their futures’.
