Students from Fleetwood High School got a real insight into their career options thanks to an event organised by Regenda Homes.
Taking place on Friday 19 May, pupils from years 7-9 had the chance to speak with professionals from a range of businesses, including M&Y Maintenance and Construction, Santander and My Dentist.
Students were able to find out about what it was like to work in each sector, and also information on the career routes and options available to them.
The events are part of a wider programme to help young people ‘Be Inspired’ through developing employability skills and providing information on apprenticeship pathways.
Steve Newsham, Regional Director at Regenda Homes, said: “We are delighted that we were able to deliver this event to students at Fleetwood High School.
“We have been working very closely with the school and a number of local businesses to deliver our vision of helping young people fulfil their potential.
“We will now be taking the career carousel to a number of primary schools across the town.”
Lee Morrison, Director of Communications Cluster at Fleetwood High School, said: “It was a great event and all of the students I have spoken to have said how much they enjoyed it.
“It was a great experience for them all and really inspiring for them to speak to so many interesting people from different business sector. It compliments the work we have been during citizenship lessons and will help inspire the students."
The career carousel events were organised as part of our 10 year vision to regenerate Fleetwood.
