Careers Fair – 2023

At Longhill High School we try to link careers and higher education with our teaching, as much as possible. By having a resident career advisor on site to frequent visits to Brighton & Sussex University, we encourage our students to think about their next steps.

On 13th July 2023 we are hosting a Careers Fair in our Main Hall, with a host of independent training providers, sixth-form colleges and further educational institutions.

The Sixth-form and FE Colleges attending are:

  • East Sussex College: Lewes
  • BACA
  • Plumpton
  • DV8 Brighton
  • MPCT (military prep college)

Independent Training Providers attending are:

  • Lagoon Watersports
  • Sutton & District Training
  • Skills Training UK
  • Steve Willis Training
  • Supajam

Other attendees include:

  • University of Brighton
  • Army Careers
  • Careers Advisor (Mr Jackson) – with apprenticeship support and knowledge

During mentor time, students will be asked to prepare questions for the exhibitors, to help them have meaningful engagements. During the fair, students will get a card stamped if they ask good questions and if students get enough stamps, they will be put into a prize draw. The incentive here is to gamify the experience and get students to appropriately utilise their time.

Careers in the following sectors will be focused on; Construction, Healthcare, Public Services, Education, Third Sector, Creative & Arts, Sport & Leisure, Travel & Hospitality, Digital & Technology, Business and Finance.
