We had a fantastic time at the St Lawrence College Careers Day.
Careers day was part of the Lower 6th Futures Week at St Lawrence College.
Hands on with devices – careers day 2016
We surprised the students with some hands on experience of components used in everyday portable devices. These included Ipods, Phones and tablets. We also dismantled an LCD screen from a tablet, so students could see exactly what went into making one.
Students had the opportunity to handle devices and components.
Some students also put the devices back together with some assistance.
Our aim on the day was to talk to students about apprenticeships. Showing there is an alternative to the traditional University route. Many students were surprised to hear that there were so many options available with apprenticeships. With many offering a variety of qualifications during and at the end of the apprenticeship.
Students were also comforted by the fact that I myself had changed my career route, as some had no idea what they really wanted to do for a career.
We hope we were able to make a difference on the day, and we look forward to returning next time.
