The annual CBHS/CGHS Mini Careers Expo will be held on 7th May 2019, 5:30-7:30pm in the Main Hall at CBHS – TONIGHT.
This is a fantastic opportunity for students and parents to check out what courses, training opportunities and employment are available beyond school.
We aim to have approximately 25+ exhibitors promoting opportunities available around NZ. Last year was a huge success, very well attended by students and parents and the feedback was extremely positive.
The Careers Expo is a good opportunity for students to see some of the options available to them as well as find out what the pre entry requirements are to the pathways of interest to them. i.e. what subjects should they be studying here at school, what grades do they need to aim for, what types of community service or part time work may assist them and where can they go to apply for courses or jobs.
Remember it is highly likely that what your son may be interested in now is not what they go on and pursue when they finish school. This generation are likely to have 15+ jobs in up to 5 different career fields throughout their lifetime. Qualifications are very important in certain fields of work but often equally important are what employers refer to as ‘Employability Skills‘, these are referred to in the ‘7 Employability Skills checklist‘. I would encourage you to also discuss these with your son.
