On Tuesday 23rd November, all S3 pupils took part in a virtual Career Expo, which was organised in partnership with The Wood Foundation. Pupils from Alford, Banff, Portlethen and Kemnay Academies interviewed national, regional and local employers across 12 different sectors to help share information which would be beneficial to young people who may wish to enter that career. Out of the 12 sectors, pupils chose 3 sectors which were of interest to them to explore further.
The event was designed for S3 pupils to encourage thinking about possible career pathways and in turn begin to think about course choices for next year.
On the day, pupils were engaged in the event and initial feedback from pupils and staff was positive, providing vital information about the careers within each sector.
