Mrs E Ahmad, Student Career and Enterprise Leader, writes:
Year 12 and 13 students visited Skills London 2019 which provided them with the opportunity to discover careers through interactive, inspirational activities and demonstrations, and helped them visually bridge the gap between what they enjoy doing and what they could potentially do as a career.
The visit was jam-packed and full of interactive, fun, inspiring and informative activities, features and hands-on demonstrations. Students were encouraged to try as many as possible and talk to the different organisations to find out more about what the future has to offer them.
Over 200 organisations were in attendance and all were eager to help students plan their future career path including employers, colleges, universities and training providers.
