Barr Beacon School once again opened its doors to local businesses. Employers spoke to Year 11-13 students about their live apprenticeship vacancies. We were fortunate to be joined by Altrad Babcock Ltd, Active Gym, The Civil Service, Kier Construction, Macintyre Hudson, In-Comm Training and Birmingham Metropolitan College, all offering vacancies across a variety of fields.
Pupils had a chance to hear about the latest vacancies and gain tips for how to succeed with their applications.
The value of these types of events was evident just a few weeks later: One of our Year 13 students has successfully secured an apprenticeship as an Auditor with Macintyre Hudson!
