STUDENTS found out about a vast array of jobs and apprenticeships at Gordano School’s annual careers convention.
Organisations including Airbus, Premier Inn, the Ministry of Defence, Women in Property and Hilton Hotels attended the event in Portishead to inform pupils about their work.
Students and parents were invited to go along to find out more about potential businesses and career opportunities and a number of college and university stands were also exhibiting at the convention.
Two former pupils, who began their careers with apprenticeships with Rolls Royce, also attended and talked to the pupils about their experiences of apprenticeship schemes.
The three talks were hugely popular and parents and students were given the chance to ask questions.
