Over 35 employers and training providers attended the Christmas themed Careers Fair at Springwood High School. Year 10 and 11 students had the chance to discuss possible future careers across a wide range of industries, from engineering, medicine and law to careers working at Holkham Hall and in animal care.
Feedback from both students and exhibitors was very positive. Elliott Fisher of British Sugar was impressed by the number of students asking in-depth questions about engineering. Several students had indicated that their interest in engineering had been inspired by the visit to Springwood in the summer of NASA Rocket Scientist, Amber Gell.
Tom Calow, who arranged the event on the school side, said: “I just wanted to thank The Skills Service for all their hard work which ensured that the careers fair was a success. I really appreciate all the support.”
