Career Insight Talks

Highworth works closely with our Alumni, and other employers and employees, to offer career insight talks for our current students.

This year our employer talks will be run via Google Teams. The talks will be run during Mentor (12:10 - 12:35) every other Friday during Terms 2 - 4, giving all students have access to the information being provided. 

Career talks are delivered by those directly working in the industry/job and cover; what the job role actually involves; skills and qualifications needed; best and worst parts of the job; how the students can improve their chances of success in the future; and a short Q&A. 

If you would like to offer a career talk, please contact Miss Hodges ( to find out more information.
