Careers Support

Each year, as part of the School’s Academic and Cultural Enhancement (ACE) week programme, Worth School holds a Careers Fair for pupils in Year 12 (Lower 6th).  A group of speakers comprising Worthians, Friends of Worth and parents of current pupils give up a morning to talk to the pupils about what life is ‘really like’ in their particular career.

As Head of Careers, Dr Duncan Pring is always extremely grateful to those Worthians who participate in the Careers Fair and in July 2017 we had 3 Worthians come back to School to talk to students about their careers. We were delighted to welcome back Adam Fudakowski G’02 who had already talked to students in the Walter Monkton Society but who on this occasion gave them the benefit of his knowledge of starting a new business.  The world of work is changing rapidly and this proved to be one of the best attended talks.  Angus Lam R’06 was one of many pupils who student Economics at Worth and went on to the read the subject at Bath and Durham Universities, which has led to important jobs in different areas.  He had spoken at last year’s Careers Fair and very kindly agree to do a repeat performance by popular demand!  He offered very helpful advice on the sort of options that an Economics degree offers in the workplace.  Last, but by no means least, James Shepherd C’09 spoke eloquently about the benefits of a career in accounting.  This is a tremendously fast growing area of employment, and one which is much misunderstood.  James was able to draw on his very personal experience to offer thoughts that were both down to earth and yet encouraging.

We are, inevitably, always looking for more Worthians to pass on their knowledge and expertise to the next generation, so please do get in touch with Duncan Pring if you would like to offer your services at future school Careers Fairs.
