The event closed with a view of life after school and depending on the careers that the pupils wish to pursue, such as dentist or lawyer, we talked about different career paths, such as studying at college or university, apprenticeships or part-time education combined with on-the-job training. We did this despite the fact that the pupils are only in year eight and still have a comparatively long time before they have to think about their careers.
