Stopsley Baptist Church was packed throughout the day on Thursday with Year 11 students from Ashcroft, Putteridge and Stopsley High Schools keen to find out more about their futures.

Over 30 exhibitors including many local employers such as Vauxhall, Selex ES, Pictons Solicitors, Hayward Tyler, Monarch Engineering, Double S Travel and GKN Aerospace where on hand to inform over 550 young people about the careers they offer. Representatives from a wide range of Higher and Further Education providers such as Luton Sixth Form College, Barnfield College, North Hertfordshire College, Oaklands College, the University of Bedfordshire and Oxford University were also present to offer guidance about their routes.

The Careers teams at all 3 High Schools expressed their thanks to all of the providers who attended and made the day such a success. This was the fourth year the event has run and already planning is underway to make next year’s event even bigger and better.
