Top tips about the future were dished out at a careers fair at The Windsor Boys’ School on Wednesday.

The event saw a variety of companies set up stall at the school, in Maidenhead Road, and speak to students about their future career paths.

Companies who attended included KPMG, Shanly Homes, Softcat, Barclays, British Airways and the Express.

For the first time the annual event was held to coincide with National Careers Week which started on Monday.

In addition to the careers fair, sixth-formers were also invited to take part in a question-and-answer session with business representatives to get a flavour of different careers.  

Students asked for advice on the different pathways into a career, including university and apprenticeships, and how they could best equip themselves for the world of work.

Head of careers at the school, Jo Lane, told the Express: “I have been really struck about how engaging they have been and how they have been really willing to actually engage with the exhibitors.

“They have asked lots of questions and so because of that I hope they are becoming aware and informed about career paths and different opportunities.

“There is such a broad range of opportunities. It takes a long time to work out which are the right ones for you.

“Days like this help sow the seeds to careers.”
