Year 9 students at Ken Stimpson Community School in Peterborough are preparing to choose their options for GCSE’s. This is the ideal time to start thinking about their future careers, and listening to career talks from local employers gives a valuable insight into different sectors.
Representatives from Buckles Solicitors, Creative Content Company, Cummins and Queensgate Centre Management gave informative and inspiring talks about their career paths and answered questions from the students.
Hazel Cottrell from Creative Content Company said afterwards: “I felt that the Meet The Professionals event was very successful, it gave children a chance to have an insight into potential jobs. It was good to have a varied group of businesses and personal backgrounds too. I think this event also helped the students understand the soft skills.”
