Young people meet potential employers at Drayton Manor event
Students look to their future at careers fair
Students from Kingsbury School were amongst the 1,500 young people attending a North Warwickshire careers event held at Drayton Manor recently.
The 'Make a Difference Day' was organised by the Borough Council's Community Development Team on behalf of the North Warwickshire Community Partnership. The aim of the event was to bring together prospective employers such as the Army, Royal Navy, BMW, Jaguar Landrover and Ocado with their potential future workforce. Training providers such as North Warwickshire and Hinckley College and South Staffordshire College were also represented to provide information and advice on courses to further develop skills.
Young People's Champion, Councillor Dominic Ferro attended the event and said:
" This was a well attended and well organised event, which meant young people could talk to real people doing real jobs and even try their hand at some new skills. It is extremely valuable for the young people to plan ahead for their futures whilst they are still in school."
He added that feedback from the schools and students so far has been very positive with Kingsbury School commenting:
" Students from Kingsbury School had a fantastic day with most coming away with very positive links to future employment or college options. "
A selection of students in Years 9-11 from Coleshill School, Hartshill School and Queen Elizabeth School in Atherstone also attended the free event over the two days.
