14th March – Careers Fair

Dear Parent/Carer

Joseph Swan Academy
Careers Fair
Wednesday 14th March 2018 from 5pm to 7pm

We would like to invite you and your son/daughter to the Joseph Swan Academy’s Careers Fair on Wednesday 14th March 2018. This will take place on our Academy ‘Street’ between 5pm and 7pm.

This event has been organised as part of our Academy Careers Programme and is intended to help our students find out more about the options available to them as they make decisions about their future. The evening should be of particular interest to students in Years 9 (who also have an options evening on 19th March 2018), and Years 11 and 13 students as they consider their options in the future. All students/parents/carers in all Year Groups are welcome to come to this event.

We have invited over thirty organisations and businesses to be represented at this event including companies such as Nissan, BT, Ernst & Young, The National Youth Film Academy, and Sage Academy of Performing Arts. There will also be representatives from Gateshead Health, the Armed Forces including the Royal Navy, the Royal Air Force and the Army. In addition our Academy Sixth Form will be available to discuss our Key Stage 5 pathways and curriculum. There will also be representatives from universities and training providers.

As you can imagine this is a very worthwhile event to attend to ensure both you and your son/daughter have as much information as possible about future pathways. Refreshments will be served throughout the evening in our Street Café.

As a further incentive all ‘family groups’ who attend this evening will be entered into a prize draw for £50 Sainsbury’s voucher.

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 14th March between 5pm and 7pm.

Yours faithfully

Miss H. E. Scott
Head Teacher
