Careers Talks

What do a Criminologist, a Biomedical Scientist, an Actress, a SKY News Reporter and a Media Communications Producer for Apple Europe all have in common? In a series of Talks spread across 5 weeks, they will visit Prior’s Field to speak to the girls about their careers and the path they took to success, and to answer any questions that they girls would like to ask.

This is an amazing opportunity for students to not only hear about possible career choices, but also to understand where their current school subjects can lead. The Talks are open to the entire school, except ‘At Home with a Criminologist’ which is open to Fourth Form and above.

To find out more and to book a place on one or more of the Talks, please visit FROG.
