Showcasing opportunities

The Skills North West at Event City had a huge range of exhibitors, showcasing a vast range of opportunities. Our year 10 students enjoyed touring the hall determined to have a go at the activities on offer and find out how courses could benefit their career pathway.

As they spoke to the providers they were able to more fully understand different routes into careers and just what each job entailed. It was important that they approached the session being open to new ideas and eager to learn. Students were able to envisage where they might be post 16, would they chose a vocational route, Apprenticeship or A Levels, and also further in the future, in terms of Higher Education.

They were enthusiastic and entered into the spirit of the event. This learning will build on their careers interviews and the other careers elements contained in our curriculum.
