School students learn about college life and careers
BMet showcased careers and college life to school students at a recent event at Matthew Boulton College.
Year 9 students from Broadway Academy and Erdington Academy spent the day at the City of 1000 Trades event.
Students participated in a range of different subjects and discovered how they could apply the activities to practical study.
Miss Williams, a teaching assistant at Broadway Academy said “It’s great for the students to tour the facilities and experience what they could do once they’ve left school.
“The students also got to understand potential career paths and learn about different job roles.”
The event included opportunities for the students to understand more about job roles in medical science, graphics and health and social care. Students were also given a ‘hands on’ look into the college’s various departments and developed skills such as basic coding, motor construction and business marketing.
Tony Dennant, Head of Matthew Boulton College, commented “As Birmingham is known as the City of 1000 trades, we wanted to offer a broad range of subjects to the school students, so they got the chance to explore both the things they enjoyed, and possible avenues they might not have even considered.
“We are keen to use this event to inspire the next generation and inform them on potential career paths across the city.
