Careers Convention 2015

Ballyclare Learning Community’s Annual Careers Convention took place on Wednesday 22nd April 2015, with Ballyclare Secondary School as the host.

It was to aid Year 10, Year 12 and Sixth Form pupils from both schools, in providing key information that would be beneficial as they make important choices in the coming months.

There was a good turnout of pupils and staff from both schools and the evening consisted of a variety of talks from a wide range of employers or institutions. Pupils were able to gather advice about the career path they would like to pursue and were informed of what qualifications was needed.
