Careers night at Nairn Academy - October 1st - event organised by Parent Council

A new initiative in the form of a Careers Fair is to be held at Nairn Academy on October 1st.

The evening is intended to be like a Mini Trade Exhibition for pupils of S3 upwards and their parents to browse through various stalls representing businesses and professions from the local area.  The event is hoped to broaden the pupils perception of careers/jobs/training available to them in their future choices.

The Army, Navy, RAF will be represented along with the Police and Ambulance Service.  Various aspects of health care, child care and hospitality will also be represented along with educational institutions such as Inverness and Moray College. Individual professionals such as a GP, engineer, solicitor as well as tradesmen such as a joiner, mechanic and plumber to name just a few.
