Students of Haybrook College learned about possible future careers post-education during a work showcase.

Slough Borough Council teamed up with Learning to Work and invited companies to showcase their industry to students. The NHS, The Army and other local companies were in attendance.

One such local company was Osborne Property Services, who gave pupils an insight into the world of construction. Osborne delivered an ice breaker activity, followed by an interview quiz encouraging the students to think about interview techniques. The students then took part in an interactive activity where they had to work together as a team.

Sahera Tariq, Client Services Co-ordinator at Slough Borough Council and Neal Allison, Community Investment Manager at Osborne Property Services who supported the event said the session inspired many students to think about their own career possibilities and what opportunities are available within the industry.

Sahera Tariq said: “This was a great opportunity for young people to see the possibilities available to them after completion of their education, and for our partnership to be able to invest in the community.”

Neal Allison added: “It is important that we build strong relationships with schools and inform young people of the different careers which are available.”
