Year 8 students took part in an Industry Day at Casterton Business & Enterprise College in Rutland. The day featured a series of workshops designed to raise awareness of different careers and develop essential employability skills.
Workshops included a digital marketing session with Datify and an insight into engineering and apprenticeships from Vogal Group.
Lizzie Benton from Datify said afterwards: “As a growing industry within the region, we have started to visit local schools and colleges to ensure that young talent in the area are prepared for the jobs of the future.
This event not only enabled us to communicate directly with students, but also showed us the incredible talent we have in our area. It was a day that showed us not only how creative these students were but also how organised and forward thinking they could be.”
