St Louis Grammar School is hosting a Careers Convention and Subject Information event on Thursday 2nd February 2017 at 7:00pm. The theme of the event ‘Look to your Future’ encouraging students to actively research and evaluate all career pathways. We hope that St Louis students and visiting students from St Columban’s College and Kilkeel High School will find the event informative and interesting.
In light of the significant competition for university and college places and future employment, St Louis is particularly keen that our young people and parents are well-informed of the many and varied post 16 and post 18 options available. The event aims to support students in making informed career decisions and it offers a unique opportunity for students and their parents to meet with representatives from a wide range of education and employment sectors and gain an insight into current and future trends in the labour market.
St Louis is indebted to the business sector for its support and acknowledge the contribution of local and international companies. St Louis extends thanks to the representatives from Universities and Regional Colleges in the North and South of Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales who have given wholehearted support to the convention.
Careers advice and guidance throughout the evening is provided by Careers Service NI advisors; Mrs A Mc Polin and Mrs M Knight and by SRC Careers advisor Mrs Nora Sherry.
St Louis subject departments will host information stands assisted by subject ambassadors from the current student body and alumni who have returned to offer advice and guidance to students making key career decisions.
