Fancy becoming a police officer, a vet or working in the fire service?
Pupils at Fulneck School in Pudsey received expert advice on career and further education opportunities at its biennial careers convention.
Thirty delegates representing professions and businesses ranging from millinery to veterinary medicine and on-line retailing were in attendance along with members of the Armed Forces, Police and Fire Service.
Among the many pupils benefiting from the convention was Elizabeth Mohun. She said:
“The convention gave me the opportunity to speak to people directly in industry, as opposed to just looking online for information. I was able to make contacts from delegates I spoke to which will hopefully open doors for me to get work experience in the industry, ultimately reaching my career goals.”
Clare Humphreys, the careers co-ordinator at Fulneck School, said:
“The convention gives pupils from years 9 to 13, and their parents, a fascinating insight into a range of potential career choices and what qualifications they will require should they choose to pursue them.
“We also understand that not all pupils want to go into further education when they leave school which is why we invited delegates from various backgrounds, including entrepreneurial business owners who were able to share the secrets behind their success.”
