Sixth Form Careers Evening

The OA Club and School’s Career Guidance Office are delighted to jointly host the next Sixth Form Careers Evening at Abingdon School on Friday 15 November 2019 from 6.00-10.00 pm. Run in the format of a professional conference, the event begins with a drinks reception before launching into an OA panel presentation (attended by all U6 pupils) and a range of career discussion sessions (each led by an OA for groups of 5-7 pupils). The event ends with a networking buffet supper.

To make this event a success, we need the help of approximately 25 early- to mid-career OAs who work in any of the following areas:

  • Architecture
  • Armed Forces
  • Arts/Culture
  • Banking/Investment Management
  • Business (Medium/Large)
  • Engineering
  • Finance/Accounting
  • Healthcare
  • IT/Computing
  • Law
  • Management Consultancy
  • Marketing/Advertising/PR
  • Media/Journalism
  • Performing Arts
  • Politics/Civil Service
  • Product/Industrial Design
  • Property
  • Psychology
  • Scientific Research
  • SME/Entrepreneurship
  • Sport

Do you have a good understanding of what entry level jobs are like, what knowledge, skills and qualifications are essential to gain employment and what typical career progression looks like? Do you have advice for Sixth Form students on how they can discover their career interests and prepare to compete effectively in the job market?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, and are available to come to Abingdon on 15 November, we would love to hear from you! For more information, contact or to sign up, fill out this google form.
