Local Senior School Pupils at Guardian Open Day

Guardian invited year 12 pupils from schools in the local area to attend an Open Day, along with representatives from Careers Wales. The day was designed to encourage young people to consider engineering as an employment choice as it is a hugely challenging and rewarding career. The day was a great success with positive feedback from both the pupils and the Careers Wales representatives.   The Open Day will now become an annual event aimed at year 9 to 12 pupils in the Bridgend area.
