Pictons Supports Students At Tring School Careers Fair

Pictons, which has offices in Tring, Hemel Hempstead, Luton and Milton Keynes, attended the Tring School Careers Fair on March 11th to inspire and encourage the school’s Year 12 students to consider a worthwhile career in law.

Approximately 150 students, aged between 16 and 17 years, will attend an informal and friendly event where they can talk to a wide range of businesses which will cover a range of sectors including law, engineering, the media plus voluntary groups and gap year options.

Drenne Dunphy, a Family Law and Mediation specialist at Pictons Tring office says “It’s so important to engage with young students and let them know about the many opportunities there are in the legal profession. It’s a great career, whether you’d prefer an administrative or secretarial role or if you have an aptitude for the studying and exams that are required to qualify as a solicitor or barrister.

“It’s an absolute pleasure to meet young people and inspire them about what I do. I would encourage other professions to take time out to speak to young people. They need our help at this stage of their lives when they are planning their future careers.”

Sue Atherton, the Careers Co-ordinator at Tring School says “We are so grateful to have the support of companies like Pictons who give our students their time and invaluable expertise. At our Careers Fair we aim to cover the whole spectrum of opportunities available for our students, whether that’s to go on to further study for a professional qualification or if they want to take their time before making any decisions and decide on voluntary work or a gap year.

“Many of the parents get involved too and our students really enjoy finding out about what is out there for them. While it is an exciting time for our Year 12 young people it can also be very stressful when they are making major decisions about their next step.
It is great when companies like Pictons give the school and our students so much support.”
