The Rowans Annual Careers Fair and Apprenticeship Week

The Rowans Annual Carers Fair

What a fantastic turn out for the 2024 Annual Rowans Careers Fair with a wide variety of new providers coming into school to engage with our pupils and share a wealth of information regarding apprenticeships, internships and job pathways with our pupils. The following providers were all in attendance: Army, MKC, Rochester Bridge Trust, Royal Navy, Greenwich (STARRT), Safe Ship Training, CC Cousins, NHS Foundation Trust, Dovetail games, IPS, DWP, North Kent/Hadlow College, Highways England and Chatham Town Football Academy. Our providers did not disappoint pupils with so many free gifts to take away promoting the various career pathways within their companies. Pupils came out with literally bags full of goodies!

Pupil used the careers information guides to review providers before entering the careers fair and earmarked their top three providers, preparing key questions they wanted to ask so they made the very most of their time in the careers fair.

We very much enjoyed the morning and as always there was a fantastic buzz of excitement around the school. It is great to have this time to really focus on our pupils’ career aspirations and get to talk to leaders within these sectors. We look forward to building on these conversations in our termly pupil aspiration setting.



National Apprenticeship week

To celebrate national apprenticeship week KS3 and KS4 had a visit from a very large local apprenticeship provider the Medway NHS Foundation Trust. Pupils learnt about the various apprenticeships they offer and how they could be a part of the 90-140 apprentice team! Apprenticeships included: Security, admin, dietician, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, nursing and therapy assistants.

Pupils researched live vacancies in various sectors, as shown below, to be able to see what is locally on offer to them.

Idowu was very informative and knowledgeable helping our pupils understand just how big an employer the Medway NHS Foundation Trust is right on their doorstep.
