At William Howard School we are committed to delivering high quality careers, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) for all of our students. Every year group follows a careers education programme which aims to raise aspirations and provide students with a better understanding of the possible pathways ahead. So on Tuesday 15 June, all Year 7, 8, 9 ,10 and 12 students took part in a STEM-themed careers event across the school day. A range of local employers including Sellafield, Story Construction, Pirelli, Capita, Bendalls, Renewi and the MoD were in in school to raise awareness of careers linked to Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. Year 7 and Year 8 students took part in hands on sessions using VR; saw how an engine worked; found out what happens to our waste; and about recyclable energy. Older students met with the employers over break times to find out about the variety of careers linked to STEM.
We’re very grateful to the employers who took the time to come in and highlight the host of possible career pathways available to our students.
