On Wednesday 7th March Julia Wilkinson, Careers Co-ordinator at Parkstone Grammar School, attended the Careers Development Institute annual awards ceremony in Leeds. Julia was delighted to be named National Careers Leader of the Year for her work in promoting careers and workplace skills with the students at Parkstone Grammar School.
This prestigious award follows the school’s recent achievement of the highest level of the national Quality in Careers Standard that recognises the outstanding provision within the school, and the strong partnerships with local business. Careers provision was also noted in the school’s recent outstanding Ofsted inspection as “a particular strength” meaning that students are well prepared for the next steps in their education, employment or training.
Parkstone is delighted to be sponsored by Coles Miller Solicitors as members of the Young Chamber who have recently themselves received the Engagement with Education Award at the Dorset Legal Awards 2018.
Parkstone Headteacher, Tracy Harris, commented that: “We are very proud of Julia and this incredible achievement. National recognition of her fantastic work for the students at Parkstone is well deserved and as a result our students are exceptionally well supported to make the next steps in their education or training.”
