Transition Information Events
Regency High holds a ‘Life Beyond School Event’ each year to give students, parents and carers the opportunity to meet some post school providers and pick up information about their post-school offers. Providers attending include local colleges, specialist colleges, day care providers, and support agencies such as social care, advocacy groups and transport.
On Wednesday 18th October we held a Jobs Fair at school with the support from Sue Fitzmaurice (SouthCo), Clare Gilkes (Jobcentre Plus) and Tom George (Careers and Transitions Advisor). This was an opportunity for students to find out about different jobs, ask questions and take part in some ‘have a go’ activities. This was a great success and there was lots of positive feedback both from the employers and the students.
World Skills Show
On the 17th November 2017 Key Stage 5 went to The World Skills Show at the NEC in Birmingham – this is the nations largest skills and careers event. The students really enjoyed it. Some of the words used to describe the event are: awesome, a great experience, impressive, inspirational, challenging, entertaining, amazing and epic.
Volunteer Enterprise Adviser
Regency High School has recently been fortunate to gain the services of a volunteer business enterprise adviser, through the Worcestershire Careers and Enterprise Company. This is aimed at developing the links between schools and business to help widen the opportunities and awareness for young people in the world of work.
Sue Fitzmaurice is a Compensation and Benefits Manager at Southco, a global manufacturing company with a large base in Worcester. Sue will be helping the school to arrange links with local businesses and help widen the aspirations and employment awareness of our students.
