Choosing GCSE options can be a very difficult decision for students. Connect Plus Services recently helped pupils at the Leigh Academies Trust to support them in picking their future career path.
Colleagues Moses Ajala, Ken Whyte, Steve Pattrick and Cintia Bailey spoke to the students from the Dartford Cluster of Academies at their Year 8 Options Convention at Grassbanks Stadium (Dartford Football Club) on 17 January.
There were around 600 students attending the event and they visited Connect Plus Services’ stand to talk about possible career paths in engineering and the options that they will need to take for their GCSEs.
This was a busy and rewarding day for all. Ken Whyte said: “It was great that CPS was there to feed young ambition”. Moses Ajala, our STEM Ambassador, said: “It was so inspiring to talk to those kids and to show them what it’s out there”.
Who knows, we may have even met our future employees, trainees or apprentices.
