LiNCHigher work with Barnes Wallis students for Careers Day

Year 11 pupils at Barnes Willis Academy taking part in our Lincolnshire Labour Market workshops

Year 11 pupils at Barnes Wallis Academy in Tattershall were educated on life as a student at university and the Lincolnshire Labour Market as part of their Careers Day this week (December 17 and 18).

Two of our LiNCHigher Ambassadors, Laura and Alex, talked about their current experience as higher education students and what university life is like for them.

The Lincolnshire Labour Market workshop looked into growing employability sectors across the county so pupils could consider going into certain jobs.

Students also explored Lincolnshire brands and how the food and drink industry is very important to Lincolnshire, with many jobs available in this sector.

Project Officer, Helen Lee, said: “We had a really good two days at Barnes Wallis Academy and we hope our workshops were very beneficial for the Year 11 students.

“Our aim was to educate students about the Lincolnshire Labour Market and inspire them to take up job roles that are high in demand.

“This is all tying in with an exciting event that we will be announcing very soon.”

“It was also great to get our Ambassadors involved in talking to the students about their experiences in Higher Education and university life and hopefully this could motivate and educate pupils into choosing these options in the future.”
