Slough careers event 2023

When it comes to the local community, we love the chance to help out!  We believe helping young people take the right step is crucial. This month we attended the Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy careers event in association with learning to work where students had the opportunity to hear first-hand about the many career paths open to them.

The event is hugely important for the young people of Slough. Not only does it raise awareness of the many different career opportunities but also promotes the employability skills that employers and the local economy need to achieve growth. 

To allow students to benefit the most, Learning to Work has facilitated a careers event for students and business volunteers to interact and provide hands-on activities to help engage. Parents were also given an allocated timeslot to allow them to access careers advice and opportunities in the surrounding areas.

There was approximately 1600 students ranging from Year 7,8,9,10,11 (Ages 11-16).

Students had many questions inquiring about all the different routes to becoming a solicitor as well as planning their potential careers.

It was a pleasure giving these enthusiastic young minds the advice they needed to pursue their law career.

We would like to share with you some snippets from the event :
