Recently Bryn Hafren Comprehensive School sixth form students had the opportunity to attend a Skills Cymru event in the Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff. They had two hours to visit different stands, ask questions and find out information about their future education and careers. The venue held different companies and providers including the Welsh Ambulance Service, BBC Wales, British Telecom, Tasty Careers as well as the Armed Forces.
There were also taster experiences available in employment areas such as Crime Scenes Investigation, 3D Printing Technology, Performance Roles and Sports Commentary.
As well as this students had the chance to speak with different Colleges and Universities, Banks and Finance Officers should higher education be the route they wish to take. All students agreed it was a valuable learning experience that certainly opened their eyes to the wealth of opportunities available to Welsh school leavers.
