Year 9 Attend HIVE Careers Event
The whole of Year 9 recently attended the HIVE Enterprise Blackburn with Darwen Careers Event hosted by DACA.
Students had the opportunity to spend the afternoon talking to a range of employers from many sectors including finance, health service, construction, manufacturing, engineering, retail, sport, science, creative, volunteering and the forces. They were able to have direct one-to-one conversations with employers about their sector and possible careers/apprenticeships.
The employers were drawn from the local Blackburn with Darwen area so that students could start to make direct links for the future. The aim was to provide impartial, good quality CEIAG that demonstrates to students the career opportunities that are available in Blackburn and Darwen, whilst supporting business in their future skills needs. The event gave students an insight into what career they may choose and therefore assist in their educational development.
It was an excellent event and there were very many positive comments from the students and many questions to stimulate future careers discussions.
