On Wednesday 8th June year 10 Workington Academy students visited St Benedict’s Catholic High School for the ‘Cumbria Aspires Master Class’.
Students were able to speak to student representatives from both The University of Manchester and University of Liverpool, who spoke about the fabulous opportunities available and shared practical advice and information.
They also met with a range of employers such as Gen2, Sellafield, REACT Foundation, BAE Systems Maritime (Submarines), James Walker, Burnett’s Solicitors and Armstrong Watson. This allowed the students to gain further knowledge about some of the opportunities available for them beyond school.
A warm thank you to St Benedict’s for hosting this worthwhile event in conjunction with Cumbria Aspires.
