Teesside High School will open its doors to over 30 universities and leading businesses in February as the School hosts its annual Careers Convention.

Local senior students and their families are invited to visit the School, based on The Avenue, Eaglescliffe, to access quality and up-to-date careers advice and guidance on Thursday 2 February from 6.30pm.

The School’s Careers Convention, now in its twelfth year, will welcome admissions advisors from leading universities as well as business representatives from a range of sectors such as medicine, law, media, sport, engineering and the armed forces, including companies such as Johnson Matthey, James Cook University Hospital, Punch Robson Solicitors and ABB Engineering.

Nicola Stephens, Deputy Head at Teesside High School, said: “We are delighted to welcome members of our local community to visit our upcoming Careers Convention.

“We live in an extremely competitive working world and to increase prospects and chances of success, students need to ensure that they stand out from the crowd.

“Networking and gathering contacts amongst the delegates at the Careers Convention can unlock a range of opportunities; from securing work experience placements, helping with a personal statement or finding out about higher or advanced level apprenticeships available locally.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the delegates who have committed to attending; it is shaping up to be a fantastic event.”
