Looking Ahead at the World of Work Evening

On Tuesday 12 February, Epsom College hosted the World of Work evening to give current Fifth Form pupils insights into various career options, ranging from Finance to Engineering, Law and Medicine.

OEs, parents and friends of the College generously gave their time to introduce pupils to their respective fields, with the pupils proving to be an appreciative audience. Such was the success of the evening, that our pupils have asked for future events to be extended in order to give them insights to an ever wider array of careers and professions. At the time of writing, three Fifth Form students have already secured work experience with speakers who attended the evening.
