During the autumn term, LCpl Dave Butler delivered a presentation to years 9, 10s and 11s regarding careers in the British army. The pupils discovered how diverse the job roles were and also the amazing opportunities available to them. Many pupils were inspired and asked questions about the entry requirements, qualifications and career pathways once you’ve passed the basic training. LCpl Dave Butler also brought some kit with him, including a respirator, bullet proof vest, burgen and other related pieces of clothes. Pupils had the opportunity to try on the kit and ask any questions.

As part of Woolston Brooks commitment to provide Pupils with opportunities to inspire and gain knowledge of the world of work they visited a major development at the new Omega in Great Sankey. The site is Warrington West Railway Station which is being constructed by Balfour Beatty, an International building company. The new development will create a network from Omega to the centre of Warrington, Liverpool and Manchester.

The pupils had a presentation about the company and also met a 16 year old apprentice who talked about his experience after leaving school without the GCSE’s he’d hoped for. Following the Q & A with the apprentice they had a tour of the site and gain knowledge about all the different trades and employment opportunities with Balfour Beatty. This has hopefully inspired the year 10’s who have already got an interest in the construction and engineering sector.
