BGS Careers Convention 2020

As part of our drive towards providing outstanding Careers provision at Batley Grammar School, we are holding our first ever annual Careers Convention on Tuesday 3rd March 2020.

The Convention will take place in the Graves Hall, we will not only have sixth form providers, colleges, local universities, and training providers but also many local employers who will be discussing the apprenticeships schemes they offer.

This is a fantastic opportunity for all our students to gain a wealth of information about further and higher education, as well as finding out about apprenticeship pathways.

Parents of KS4 students will be invited so you can find out, first-hand, about the range of opportunities available to all our students. There will also be a chance to attend a presentation outlining local labour market information and trends.

Further details about the event will follow in the next few weeks.

If you have any questions about the event, please contact our Careers Leader, Mr Hussain:
