On Wednesday the 27th of April 2016 the Phase 3 and 4 students at Milestone Academy visited their annual Careers Fair. Students and families had the opportunity to speak to a number of service providers to find out more about future opportunities, including local colleges, specialist colleges, day services and advice services.
This year was very exciting as we welcomed the Kent Supported Employment team from KCC who will be piloting the Supported Internships for some of our current Year 13 Milestone Academy@Wilmington Academy students during the next academic year.
It was very pleasing this year as we had a huge number of families attend. The sports hall was buzzing from 9:30 through to 14:30. A number of the students were also interested in the pens and stress balls on offer from the service providers and it became a competition to collect a variety of items.
It was lovely to have so much support from a wide variety of relevant providers.
