Women in Engineering, Science & Technology - Y7 Careers Talk
On Friday 9th June, a group of Y7 girls were joined by firefighter and former student, Claire Holmes, for a careers talk.
The talk was set up by Liz Kettle from WEST (Women in Engineering, Science & Technology), an organisation that encourages girls to consider the widest range of career options, including those that are traditionally considered male jobs. (about WEST)
The students saw posters and videos introducing a range of female role models, then heard about Claire’s journey, her job and her inspirations. The students took the opportunity to ask Claire lots of questions about being a firefighter.
We hope the students were encouraged to broaden their career aspirations for the future.
Thanks to Claire, Liz and WEST for a fantastic careers talk.
