The annual Abingdon Independent Schools’ Careers Convention, jointly run by Abingdon School, Our Lady’s Abingdon and St Helen and St Katharine, provides an excellent opportunity for students to gather information about and personal insights into careers of interest and educational routes into those careers. It features parents and alumni of all three schools, as well as local employers, representing a wide range of careers. Students can meet with ‘career representatives’ one to one, participate in small group career discussions, and watch panel presentations on current topics. The event is always well attended – and much appreciated – by students and parents alike.
This year’s Careers Convention will be held on Friday evening 16 March 2018 at St Helen and St Katharine. At present, we are recruiting parents and alumni to volunteer as a career representative.
To register your interest, please complete the form below no later than Friday 17 November 2017. Completing this form DOES NOT commit you to being a volunteer; it only tells us of your interest. We will follow up with you after you register to provide further information and answer any questions you may have. Career representatives are invited to arrive from 5:30pm to set up and then enjoy a buffet supper, before the event kicks off promptly at 7:00pm with a keynote address. The event ends at 9:30pm.
Thank you for completing this form.
