Volunteering careers guidance for Yr9 students

Posted on: 06/02/2020

We’ve had a very enjoyable day today at Kingsthorpe College in Northampton in our role as business volunteer for Silverstone Park’s Inspiration for Innovation careers programme with local secondary schools.

The events are always rewarding and this was Carl McKellar’s sixth visit to the school in the past 18 months to offer advice and reassurance to young people – many on the cusp of making big decisions about their futures (which GCSEs to take, career paths to pursue etc).

During the day, Carl, along with fellow business volunteers, chatted with tables of seven students at a time during two speed networking sessions – that’s five minutes per table, adding up to 70 students in all.
