Inspiring the Black Country 2024

Year 8 pupils visited a large Careers Fair in Wolverhampton, where they met with hundreds of employers and discovered new careers through interactive exhibits. Pupils were able to film a news report with the BBC, discover how special effects are created for film with Real SFX, change a tyre with Nacro, pull a pint with Marston’s, win treats for matching aircraft with Collins Aerospace, learn to play the drums with Wolverhampton Music Service, practise CPR with the NHS and even get their own fake bruise with Dudley College’s TV makeup experts.

Pupils said:

“I really enjoyed it. There was so much to do.”

“My favourite part was filming with the BBC. I was a bit nervous hearing my voice back though.”

“I have learnt about lots of jobs today but in a fun way.”
