Students have been encouraged to think about their future career plans in an action-packed week of activities at Burnley College Sixth Form Centre.
A Level and Advanced Level Vocational students were given the tools to make their dreams of university study and exciting careers become a reality through a series of seminars, careers roadshows, interactive, fun events and brain-storming.
Student Services staff at Burnley College Sixth Form Centre led a series of seminars on how to create the perfect CV, UCAS applications, employability, student finance, Apprenticeships and presentation skill, with a bespoke session on the advantages of volunteering and gap year opportunities.
Students were invited to step into a Crystal Maze to identify and collect the skills needed for a successful career; charities showcased local volunteering opportunities help the community while boosting a CV or university application and an Employer Question Time saw students quiz a panel of recruitment specialists drawn from local businesses on what makes a job candidate stand out from the crowd.
A highlight of the week were a day of guest lectures delivered by VR/AI expert Martin Rothwell, on the impact of emerging technologies on all disciplines and sectors in the future, and Adam Corbally, who reached the final stages of The Apprentice, with his top tips for success. Adam also acted as one of the judges in a fashion show in which students modelled their perfect interview outfit.
