Weekly broadcasts from Speakers for Schools
Speakers for Schools is excited to present its weekly broadcast schedule! This schedule will be updated regularly and talks will be targeted to different age groups.
Wednesday 9 March 2022 Collingwood hosted its second whole College Careers Fair. The event was a huge success with over 40 organisations attending, drawn from local companies, universities, our parent body, alumnae and friends and family of our teachers. Students were lucky enough to be given information from a wide range of careers areas including IT, Horticulture, Armed Forces, Police, Fire and Health Services. The fair also aimed to educate students on different paths that they can take, including apprenticeships and higher education. All students engaged with the event, from Year 7 to Year 13. We were also delighted to welcome students from Kings International College.
During this academic year 2021-2022, Year 10 students will be given the opportunity to take part in a week of work experience. We believe that the opportunity to take part in work experience allows an excellent insight into possible career paths and supports student’s thinking about college, apprenticeship and other pathways leading to their chosen career path. Additionally, it is envisioned that students would further develop their skills in communication, teamwork, time management etc during this time. Work Experience will take place during the week of Monday 4 – Friday 8 July 2022.
