Bromsgrove Editorial 21st Nov, 2018

A ‘FUTURES’ afternoon was held at South Bromsgrove High School to give students in years nine to 12 an insight into careers they could go into, writes Thomas Bailey.

Representatives from local businesses and former students joined in to lead workshops about their careers and the steps they took in order to get there.

More than 20 visitors attended representing large national companies such as Jaguar Land Rover, Mondelez and Serco.

Local enterprises Redfrost Photography, Barton, Firtop, Midland Technical Translations, Crackon Productions and NHS representatives were also there.

Former students included individuals who have worked their way into roles as a GP, pharmacist, mental health nurse and barrister.

Specialist talks for the sixth-form included “How to find the right apprenticeship?” and “Why go to university?’, which was given by a representative from the University of Surrey.

Careers leader at South Steve Clark said: “We’re really grateful for everyone who has given time today to come out and guide our students. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for them to hear directly from people doing the job and gain an insight into potential careers.”
