Year 8 Careers Day
The whole of Year 8 attended a ‘Meet the Employers’ event put on by the Careers Dept recently.
Sixteen local employers/employment sectors from various industries came in to school - BAE, law, dentistry, civil service, social services, the Health Sector, the Army, electrical apprenticeships, Blackburn Rovers, Pierce Accountants, Age concern, Stonehouse Logic IT, The Cardboard Box Company, engineering, construction and STEM ambassadors.
It was a fantastic opportunity for students to ask direct questions to employers about their own personal career route and about the employment sector in general.
We thank the employers who were able to give of their time and knowledge to help our Year 8 students as they start to think more seriously about their own future career paths.
