On Tuesday 14th October, 22 Glebelands students from Year 11 went to Epsom Race Course for an important skills and careers festival for young people.

Its aims were to help young people see the full range of possibilities for careers, training and further education in Surrey and to raise their aspirations and give them opportunities to plan their next steps.

During the visit students were able to visit over 100 stalls of colleges, work-based providers, Surrey employers and hands-on workshops.

The students were very motivated, asked questions and tried lots of activities.

They were also able to collect information about their future choices.
