Year 7 visit Career and Skills Show

On Tuesday 6th March, the vast majority of Year 7 visited the Hive in Claughton Road, Birkenhead. The event, organised by the Wirral Young Chamber Career and Skills Show, aimed at younger students than those who would normally attend open days and careers conventions.  Exhibitors were grouped in nine zones representing businesses from industry, STEM organisations, an Innovation zone, NHS & Caring zone, Armed Forces and Community Support, a Creative and Digital zone, F.E Institutions and a Hair & Beauty zone. Many of the exhibitors included “hands-on” activities along with advice on qualification requirements and career paths to their respective occupations.  The purpose of the visit was to raise pupils’ aspirations and awareness of what awaits them when they make the giant leap from Key Stage 4/5 full time education to the world of work.
