Climbing careers ladder

saltash.net community school students last week visited the Big Careers Show at the Royal Cornwall Showground in Wadebridge to explore their future career ideas and learn more about the opportunities available.

The group of year 11 and year 13 students, all of whom will be making important decisions about their studies or employment for next year, had the opportunity to talk with employers, to collect information and prospectuses, and to try ‘have a go’ activities that included a climbing wall, professional cookery and construction tasks.

The trip was organised by Mr Killeya, Head of Sixth Form, with support from the school’s personal development programme and from pupil premium funding.
Mr Killeya, said, “A lot of our students have already decided on their plans for next year, whether that is to enter the Sixth Form, go on to University or take up an Apprenticeship, and that’s great. It’s also important to our ethos, though, that all students, from 11-18, have the careers support and guidance that they need, and that those who are still deciding get the appropriate extra input like this careers show.”
