Careers of the Future

Posted: 14th June 2024

Alison Urban from Immerse Education delivered a great workshop for Year 10 students with a focus on preparing for careers that don’t exist yet.

Students looked at the changing job market and how creativity and innovation shape career pathways. Jobs looked at in detail were Chief Listening Officer, Cloud Architect, Tele Medicine Physician and Director of Story Telling. Alison talked about the impact of AI and the trajectory of careers shifting towards innovation, sustainability and digital proficiency.

This year Thornton has launched an IT Employability Skills programme which will help our Year 12 students develop the digital literacy skills that are essential for so many job roles.

The next exciting event for girls in Year 10 is visiting the UCAS Fair at Bedford and learning more about life in Year 12 at Thornton.
