In addition, we host a Job talks day where a variety of professionals come into school to talk about their vocational area be it in Medicine, Construction, Accounting, Journalism, Engineering, Digital Media, Sport and so on. We also invite representatives from all the local universities be it: -Leeds University, Leeds Metropolitan University, Leeds City College University Centre, York University, York St John University, Bradford University, Huddersfield University & Sheffield University.
