A brilliant 2 days has been spent at the Ulverstem event. It was great to chat with primary, secondary and FE students, alongside parents and employers about the careers opportunities linked to STEM subjects in the Furness area.
With the primary students we talked about being the best you can be and shining like a star to showcase all of the skills that you have. With the older students we talked about using the star acronym to be successful at interviews to demonstrate your skills to answer those tricky competency based questions.
A really well attended event with over 1200 pupils leaving the event excited and motivated about science and technology and starting to think about their future careers .Caroline Vernon, Furness Education and Skills Partnership (FESP), Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership (CLEP), Cumbria Careers Hub, The Careers & Enterprise Company #careers #stemeducation #careeradvice
