Vercity inspires at Heathcote School Careers Day
On 10th June 2022, Vercity and Academy Services Waltham Forest presented at Heathcote school for their Careers Day. Over 800 pupils attended to interact with more than 20 booths. Handouts were delivered to the pupils about Vercity and how they could get involved in Asset Management.
Pupils visiting the fair were accompanied by their form tutors and were briefed beforehand to ask questions and get ‘Career Curious’.
The students were engaged and enthusiastic, expressing their interest to work for Vercity in the future.
Michelle Burnett, RCDP & Careers Coordinator at Heathcote School, shared her thanks and gratitude to all involved:
“Can I please extend a massive thank you to each and every one of you for supporting our Careers Fair today to be the success that it was. Please do also pass my thanks onto your colleagues who I don’t have email addresses for that were here too. You all deserve to relax with a nice glass of something chilled this evening. I will be raising a toast to you all, you were amazing!
Across the day I had so many positive comments from staff and pupils about how much they enjoyed the event. Pupils found it really interesting and helpful to come and speak to you all (I promise it wasn’t just your freebies and sweets that got their attention!) Many teachers came up to me and said they were unaware of just how many different pathways into employment there are that differ to the ‘traditional’ routes – You all certainly fulfilled the brief for the day to ‘broaden horizons’ and this makes my job so much easier. I have also had some feedback from a couple of parents who said that their kids have brought home your booklets and information with one Y9 even pleading with his mum to take him to an open day next week – I think that says it all!”
Thank you to the Vercity team; Arlind Zenel, Ellie Wise, Clare LeGrys, Mark Cade, Jeanne Curry, Sarah Westwood, Ellie Rowland-Callanan and Brogan Day for their support and help, leading up to, and during the event.
We would also like to thank the ASWF Board for contributing to the Lunch on the day, this was greatly appreciated by all.
