Year 9 Careers Day

Posted on May 10, 2016

Year 9 students had their Careers Day on Wednesday 4th May.  They spent the day taking part in 30 minute careers-taster sessions learning about industries ranging from Construction, Retail, the Army and the Government and Environment.  Presentations were also given on Post-16 options from College and University Representatives.  Visitors provided detailed overviews which will help students in making better informed career decisions.

Engineering students in Year 9 also spent part of the day with Simon Kettle of STEMworks (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).  They worked on two challenges - one to make a simple generator using a magnet and coil of wire and the second to create a wind turbine to produce electricity.
