There was a focus on the future at the King’s Lynn Academy as students took part in a host of activities to mark National Careers Week.

The programme included a talk by representatives of the College of West Anglia, delivered to around 200 pupils in years eight and nine last Tuesday, about the apprenticeship opportunities available there.

Luke Bryon, the college’s school liaison officer, said: “With the huge variety of jobs and training opportunities currently available, it is more important than ever that students get as much advice and guidance possible, so they can make an educated and informed decision about their career direction.

“Apprenticeships are a great opportunity for students who want to gain high level vocational qualifications.”

Staff of BAE Systems, based at RAF Marham, also visited the school to speak to students in years nine and 10 last Thursday.
