Broadwater School

Career talks - Jan 2022

Y7 in the Hall listening to Duncan McIndoe, Turner & Townsend

Over 500 students were involved in (virtual) Career Talks during Period 5 on Friday 21st January. Year 7 and 8 enjoyed a talk from Duncan McIndoe (a Speaker for Schools speaker, Global HR Director of Turner and Townsend with a focus on sustainable construction engineering) and Years 9 and 10 got to choose and experience 2 different talks from a diversified group of speakers and industries. (see photo below). Students seemed to enjoy the experience, although they would have preferred to have the speakers attend in person (hopefully next year!). They filled in a feedback questionnaire and gave some good suggestions for professions they might also like to see in future. Main messages from the speakers to the students were to work hard, try your best in all you do and have a hunger for knowledge and learning new things, and you can be successful.
