Inspiring Speakers

Higher Apprenticeships

We were visited by a team of first, second and third year Higher Apprentices from Rolls Royce plc. With entry requirements of three excellent A Levels, Higher Apprenticeships are changing the face of careers options for sixth form leavers and we are keen that our girls have as much information as possible so that they can make well thought out decisions.

The session was led by one of our old girls, Harriet Futers, who is a Project Management Higher Apprentice. She was joined by two of her colleagues as they talked about their career choices and Rolls Royce experiences so far.


A career in accountancy?

As part of our careers programme of visiting speakers we recently hosted Chris Peat and Sky Farnsworth from Cooper Parry accountants. They met with 10 of our older girls who are considering careers as accountants.

Chris and Sky explained the various routes into the accountancy profession and also talked about Cooper Parry’s corporate culture and innovative new head office. Lots of questions followed from the girls and several are planning to follow up the talk with applications for work experience, higher apprenticeships or university placements.
