The International Languages and Science Careers Fair: Focussing Minds and Making Connections
Orr, Natalie; Birtchnell, Matthew
Dartford Grammar School is a selective academy and an International Baccalaureate World School with a strong, central international ethos. All 797 students in Key Stages 3 and 4 study two foreign languages up to GCSE level (including Chinese or Japanese) and all 537 students in the sixth form study at least one foreign language. To ensure a complete "learner journey" for the students, from Year 7 to Year 13 and beyond, and to help give purpose to their language learning, the school recognises the importance of providing international and expert careers advice. We have a range of initiatives to enable this to be achieved, but the main focus to provide key information to students, and to introduce them to the possible opportunities available in the future, is through our annual International Languages and Science Careers Fair. A short list of references and links is included. [For the complete volume, "Employability for Languages: A Handbook," see ED566902.] La Grange des Noyes, 25110 Voillans, France. e-mail:; Web site:
