Welling School Careers and Futures Evening - 14th December 2023
Dear Parents and Carers,
I am writing to let you know that we will be holding our inaugural Careers and Futures Evening for Year 9, 10,
11, 12 & 13 students on the 14th December 5.00pm - 7.00pm. This event is a key part of our strategy of
supporting our students in their college, university and career aspirations and aims to provide as much
information as possible about the future pathways available to them.
At the event approximately 20 colleges, universities and private and public sector organisations / employers
will be in school to speak to our students and offer advice regarding their field of expertise. Over the coming
weeks, we will be disseminating information to students about this event and students will undertake some
preparatory work during their tutor lessons, prior to the event, to ensure that they are fully prepared.
Therefore, we would like to invite Parents and Carers to attend the Careers and Futures Evening with their
child, as this will be an excellent opportunity for students to discuss career and educational aspirations with
