The careers department organised a Networking Breakfast Event for all Upper Sixth students to help prepare them for the next stage in their career, whether it be university or employment. For many students gaining a degree is no longer sufficient to secure employment. Students need to develop their employability skills; these include their ability to network with others which can help support students in making key contacts for the future, gaining relevant work experience or completing an internship. The purpose of the event was to help our students see how professionals from a range of careers have used networking to their advantage. We had a number of high profile guests who attended from both the public and private sector.
