Opportunity Knocks

Opportunity Knocks

Students had the chance to find out what skills, qualifications and training are required for different career paths at an event in Pickering this week.

The Year 9 students were invited to Opportunity Knocks at Lady Lumley’s School to meet employers from across Ryedale.

They visited the various stands to chat to employers about their training and career opportunities. The students found it very helpful in deciding on course or career options.

Companies attending the event included Sylatech, NYBEP, North York Moors National Park, Helmsley Arts Centre, Derwent Training Association and Access to Music.

Year 9 student Phoebe Nicholson, said: “I found the event very useful as it gave me a better idea about all the different career and work opportunities there are when you leave school.”
