On February 2nd Careers Wales held an Inspirational Event for Year 9 pupils for Brynmawr, Ebbw Fawr and Abertillery Comprehensives. The purpose of the event was to help Year 9 pupils make informed decisions on the career options available to them.
Over 25 businesses representing the Manufacturing, Engineering, Construction and Social Housing sectors were present all giving interactive ‘taster sessions’ and general advice and guidance. Representing Tai Calon were Phil Meek, Pete Lewis and Mark Davies. Pete and Mark’s interactive sessions based on electrical, plumbing and heating activities proved very popular with both the boys and girls.
During the course of the day we engaged with over 470 pupils. It’s fair to say that everyone was surprised at the diversity of job roles available within the Social Housing sector and gained a far greater awareness of Tai Calon as an organisation and the work we do in the community.
