Aleandro Year 12:

“This event has really inspired me as it has given me a better and more focused idea of what I want to do in future. I spoke with ITV about how important it is to make decisions now and it has really got me thinking about alternative pathways such as apprenticeships. We also spoke about how important it is to pursue a career that makes you happy and that’s what I want to do”.

Sarah Whitaker – Global Events

“I wish that there had been events like this when I was their age. I am so impressed by how focused they all are. The students are so passionate and they have really made me think today about what more my company can offer young people and the skills that we can help them to develop”.
