Thetford Academy - Your Future Careers Event
Yesterday the Norfolk Chamber helped support Thetford Academy’s Your Future Careers Event where 40 businesses attended to help educate and inspire the 400 plus students that visited the exhibition.
The School Hall was brimming with a huge range of businesses who had bought along engaging activities and visuals to attract the attention of the students and help engage them with the sector of each business. The students enthusiastically decorated plasterboard at the Novus Training stand, played with Poppy the dog at the Old Golfhouse Veterinary stand and practiced resuscitation at the NHS stand. Thanks to the hard work of the school, all of the students were confident in approaching each of the stands and asked questions, hopefully sparking potential career paths in the Navy, in construction or going onto further education at Cambridge or Birmingham University.
The event achieved its aim to bridge the gap between businesses and young people in education and Norfolk Chamber were pleased to have taken part and witnessed the overwhelming support from the businesses, and the enthusiasm and positivity from the students.
