Our Lady’s Primary School in Corby held a careers week to give pupils an insight into their possible futures.

More than 20 professionals from a wide range of careers shared their skills with children at the school during the week from Monday, June 24, to Friday, June 28.

In two-hour sessions, from 1pm to 3pm each afternoon, children were given the chance to try out microscopes with a biomedical scientist, plaster a wall, set up their own mini-parliament, find out what it takes to become a paediatric nurse, a forester, a chef, a musician, an engineer, a mayor, dancer or film-maker to name but a few. Learning mentor Sami Scott said: “This exciting opportunity is about giving children practical, hands-on, taster sessions of a whole range of possible careers so that they will have a wider range of futures to dream about.”
