On Wednesday 4th February, many people attended the Careers Convention which was held at Queen Anne High School. The Evoke team were present from 4pm till 5:30pm to gather information about how people felt about the night’s events and what they offered to the students of Queen Anne. We interviewed various people and you will see their reactions to the proceedings below.
Project Trust gives you the opportunity to leave the country and travel to third world countries and teach the students of a particular area. The woman who was representing the project, who was a part of Project Trust, has said she liked the idea of having a night to speak to colleagues, universities or even companies about the future of pupils.
The men who were representing the Air Force told us about the benefits and downsides of being in the Air Force. In the Air Force, it comes with a very good pay and the chance to travel the world but at the cost of not seeing your family and friends for a long period of time.
Much like the Air Force, the Army told us about the good sides and the bad sides. They were incredibly similar, sharing the facts of good pay but at the price of not seeing your family. But many people believe it is an honour to die for their country.
The lady who was running the GTG training stand told us that GTG training offers various skills such as business and mechanical skills. They also give out Apprenticeships for younger students who can’t find a job and are looking for a place of work.

This gives students who have a love for chemistry outside of school to do a sort of career following the scientific path.

Scouts give boys and girls w
ith a lot of free time a chance to travel and have fun, including camping, ski trips and even just fun indoors. You also e
arn badges for your achievements. The stand coordinator thought that the night was an amazing opportunity to find something you’re really interested in and make it your career path.
While some people may believe it should just be for senior students, we, as first years, disagree as we found out useful information for ourselves.
