Wednesday 15 March 2023

This year’s Careers Convention will take place in the Assembly Hall at Truro School on Wednesday 15 March, 4.00pm – 6.30pm. Our aim is to provide an opportunity for students from the 3rd Year through to the Sixth Form to meet a range of professionals working in a wide variety of careers.

This year we have again created a dedicated area to showcase some of the major growth industries such as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and those outlined in the Government’s Industrial Plan which links closely to Cornwall’s Strategic Economic Plan. These areas in particular offer some fantastic employment opportunities for graduates and school leavers, often in emerging industries.

Our region’s Strategic Economic Plan focuses on two broad clusters of advanced engineering (including agritech, aerospace, spacetech, marinetech and renewable energy), and digital innovation (including creativetech, low carbon living, and healthtech).

STEM subjects of science, technology, engineering and maths have long been areas with huge opportunities for graduates and school leavers

At Truro School we are passionate about providing our students with opportunities to encounter professionals from a range of industries, and ensuring that they leave Truro School well prepared for the ever changing and competitive job market.

We very much hope you will be able to join us for the evening.
