On Thursday 7th February, ten children from Year 5 were invited to attend the Changing Horizons careers event at Blackpool Winter Gardens. The event was hosted and organised by the Civil Service. The children had the opportunity to speak to a wide variety of employers from across the North West region.
Whilst talking to staff from the Ministry of Justice, the children learned how the UK court system works and the various job roles available. Representatives from HM Revenues and Customs taught the children about tax, while apprentices from an electronics firm showed them how to make different circuits.
Everyone had a great day and left with a better idea of the different types of careers available and the skills that employers are looking for.
