In addition to supporting open days and careers events at PROCAT the PROCareer team are able to attend careers fairs and industry focused days held at schools throughout the year. They can provide advice and guidance aimed at students choosing GCSE options and can explain the various STEM pathways that are available post 16 and post 18.
We know how valuable it is to start conversations with young people and their families as early as possible to explain the qualifications that are needed to access study programmes, traineeships and apprenticeships. We can bring along some of our Apprentice Ambassadors to speak to students first-hand about what it is like to gain qualifications and essential skills whilst working, for example in the rail or aviation industries, and earning a wage.
We can also set up and run mock interviews with students. Schools have found this really motivates young people to consider their futures and to achieve the best grades they can in the qualifications they are taking.
