Virtual Careers Week March 2021

Virtual Careers Week 1st – 6th March 2021

Following the success of our last on-site careers week, particularly with the careers simulation pod, we are disappointed that this year we will be running this event virtually.

However, we have some very exciting plans that we hope you will enjoy. Riverston will be celebrating National Careers Week from Monday 1st March.

We have registered to this excellent virtual careers programme, creating lifetime accounts for every one of our pupils, in order to help them each chart their progress towards their future careers. The resources and ‘careers tracking’ facility will form a large part of our on-site careers provision when we return, in both form time sessions and 1:1 careers support discussions.
