Business professionals from across Leeds spent an evening speaking to students at a Leeds independent school about the wealth of career opportunities open to them.
The event at Fulneck School, in Pudsey, encourages senior students to think about their prospective careers paths as they prepare to leave the school.
This year the fields represented were more varied than ever, with experts from healthcare, the armed forces, conference translation, law, PR, design, engineering, further education and IT, on hand to offer their expert advice to the students and their parents.
Deborah Newman, Fulneck School principal, said:
“The event allows pupils to find out more about a wide range of careers directly from people working in them every day, rather than having to trawl through company websites.
“It gave those who already know what they want to pursue an opportunity to get ahead of the game, and better prepare themselves for further study or the world of work.
“Those that haven’t yet decided what they would like to do following school also benefitted from the event, learning about the vast array of potential career paths to explore.”
Mrs Newman added:
“With delegates from such varied backgrounds, this year’s event proved invaluable to our pupils as they begin to prepare to enter the world of work.”
