Bridge Academy

Progression Fairs and Insight Talks

Students, parents and carers, and Bridge alumni were invited to our Careers Insight Talks. The format has now changed and the talks are now held during the school day.

The panel-style events gave the audience the opportunity to hear from industry experts about a particular sector or type of career, the jobs that are available, the skills and qualities that it takes to succeed, and the various career pathways into the industry including graduate and apprenticeship routes.  Time was allocated for small group conversations with the speakers.  

Students, parents and carers are also invited to our Progression Fairs.

See the attached booklets for information about speakers and / or organisations who have attended previous Fairs and Insight Talks:
