Year 8 Careers Event

KES Year 8 students recently attended a careers event hosted by Rochford District Council and the Prospects Group.

The aim was to encourage young people to think about possible careers in local growth areas. They spent the day in workshops with local professionals who explained their areas of specialist knowledge, including:

  • Town Planning with Anderson's Construction
  • Investigating jobs in the NHS
  • Working with 3D cameras to explore advanced manufacturing
  • Understanding logistics

The students found the individual workshops fun and interesting and we hope this gave them some food for thought regarding their future careers.
