The dedicated Careers department at Trent regularly supports pupils from across the year groups with preparation for a seamless move from school life to that of university, employment and beyond. This year the team have upped the ante to make it a Careers Week to remember.
Visiting speakers have included:
Chantale Duarte, Sports Psychologist from Gamechanger Performance who are at the top of their league as partners to The Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) and The Football Association (FA) at St George’s Park. Chantale’s interactive talk was provided to Sport Scholars, pupils and A-Team players to inspire them to consider their mindset in relation to their sport and to inform them about careers in sport.
Stephanie Haskey, a Coroner in Nottingham, talked to interested pupils about her fascinating work and asked them to review a couple of cases with her – this stimulated highly thought-provoking conversations amongst the students.
Charles Hardy, Senior Project Manager at LinkedIn and Old Trident, engaged Year 13 pupils with his insider knowledge on the world-renowned network. In order to help students prepare for their future careers, Charles explained how to harness the power of networking through LinkedIn as well as how to access insights and opportunities.
Sophie Crocker, Architect and Old Trident, explained her career path as well as elaborating on her passions and viewpoint on architectural design as a public service, where there is a very real impact on people’s personal and professional lives.

“The National Careers Week has helped pupils to further develop their spirit of curiosity. We are very grateful to the our speakers and in particular Old Tridents (former Trent pupils) who kindly offered their time to speak with pupils about their journeys after leaving the school and opened up many minds to new opportunities in the process” Fiona Starbuck, Head of Careers
