On the 7th December Bodmin College held a Careers Fair for all of the students in years 10,11 and 12. The Careers Fair had a theme of Big Bang as it was particularly aimed at STEM Careers but many other careers sectors were represented as well.
This was an opportunity for students to talk to local employers about the types of jobs that are available, what the jobs entail and what qualifications and qualities are needed to be able to apply.
We had a wide range of employers represented from The RAF to CORMAC as well as several Colleges and Universities represented for students who wished to gather more information about their next steps.
Alongside the Careers Fair students were given a talk about Apprenticeships and opportunities in Cornwall. The Apprenticeship talk explained the different levels of apprenticeships available, even up to degree level and included a talk by a local software apprentice explaining her level 4 Apprenticeship and the opportunities and training she was receiving. The talk about opportunities in Cornwall explained that there are many surprising sectors where Cornwall is really growing such as Digital technologies.
There was a real buzz about the day and students really made the most of discovering more about what they could do in the future.
