Wednesday 18 March

This year’s Careers Convention will take place in the Assembly Hall at Truro School on Wednesday 18 March, 4.00pm – 7.00pm. 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.

Keynote Address


Our keynote address, in the Burrell Theatre, will be delivered by Simon Haines (CO89), Founder and CEO of London firm, Simply Get Results Ltd; with 25 years of international experience advising global corporations on how to be more successful, we are delighted that he has agreed to talk about ‘The Workplace of Tomorrow’.  This invaluable session will be repeated twice to ensure all students and parents are afforded the opportunity to attend (4.00 to 4.30pm and again 6.15 to 6.45pm).

Breakout Sessions/Workshops


For the first time we are also incorporating six breakout sessions/workshops for 5th year and Lower Sixth students at Truro School, each delivered by experts in their respective fields.  These will enable students and parents to ask further questions about specific areas such as STEM based careers (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), apprenticeships, creative industries and careers in medicine or law, and for those students with their hearts set on a future in London, we are thrilled to welcome Matt Begley (parent of alumni) from Harris Begley Financial Planning and Graham Hooper (parent of alumni) to share their insights about ‘Careers in the City’. These sessions have limited space, so please encourage your son/daughter to sign up as soon as possible, so as not to be disappointed.  They can do this by speaking to their form tutor.

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.

Thank you to our supporters:
