Inspirational Careers Day Leaves Pupils Buzzing with Ideas

Wednesday 27 June 2018

Christ’s Hospital welcomed Chris Lubbe to lead a GE (Year 11) key note address as part of their careers day on 25 June. Chris Lubbe spoke passionately about his time in South Africa, and his nine years working as Nelson Mandela’s body guard. He gave his life story and encouraged pupils to reflect and grasp the opportunities presented to them at Christ’s Hospital and to be courageous in their decision making and determined about making a difference in the world around them. 

This talk was followed by the career speed dating event when a large number of Old Blues (former pupils) gave talks. The pupils could sign up for four of the talks from a range of 22 represented professions, including working within the tech industry, a career in medicine, working in the sciences, a career in politics, publishing, finance, law, the police and many more. They had the opportunity to ask their own questions, including how to enter a particular industry, what qualifications and skills they would need, right through to the day to day work. Pupils left the event buzzing, with plenty of helpful input and insight.

Helen-Claire Burt, Head of Careers said: “Many thanks to all who came to assist at this event – what a wonderful way for the career education programme to end this academic year.”
