During this visit, the Year 10 pupils were given the opportunity to speak to staff and students from numerous universities, including Lancashire, Manchester and Liverpool, about the range of courses they have available and the application process. In addition, they were able to network with representatives from a wide range of multi-national companies, including the NHS, Amazon and Deloitte. These company representatives were on hand to discuss the apprenticeship opportunities available and the application processes.
As well as the company and university stands, there were a range of careers-related presentations, a CV Clinic and a Careers’ Advice drop-in service. This was an invaluable opportunity for the pupils to learn more about the wealth of opportunities that are available, regardless of what career path may interest them.
