May saw Caludon host a careers parental engagement session. The evening aimed to provide both parents and students with information on future career options. There were a wide variety of education and training providers including four local universities, a range of apprenticeship providers, the army, navy and the national careers service. There were also some fantastic talks from Richard Witts from De Montfort University and David Lennox who overseas apprenticeships for Coventry. Staff from Caludon were also present to provide careers advice, sixth form information, interview techniques and CV writing skills. The evening was a great success with a large parental and student turnout. One provider when asked said ,“It is the biggest turn out I have been to with any careers event of this sort” with another commenting it was “great to see so many parents supporting their children”. A big thank you for all of those staff Richard Witts: De Montfort University involved and to the many parents and students who attended to make it such a positive and successful event. The careers team are planning on running a number of careers events both in school and in the evening across the coming year targeting different Key Stages.
