Future PathsMalton School
Students and parents had the chance to explore career, further education and apprenticeship avenues at an event hosted by Malton School this week.
More than 35 local employers ranging from the Army through to Travel and Tourism had stands at the careers’ event in the West Wing Hall.
Students were able to wander round the event in their year groups to find out what skills, qualifications and training are required by local employers. They found it helpful in deciding on courses or career options and future routes.
Flying Futures, 3aaa York, Derwent Training, Career Scope, North Yorkshire Engineering Apprentices and NYBEP were just some of the providers who the students were able to chat to.
As well as employers and apprenticeship providers, there were also representatives from several universities including Scarborough, Coventry, Bradford and Hull.
Assistant Head of KS3 Sam Beal said: “The event went really well. It was very busy and we’ve had some really positive feedback from both the students and the providers.
“The students visited the event in their year groups so they had plenty of opportunity to talk to the visiting teams. It helped give them an idea of what future paths are available to them.”
