A GROUP of students are looking to the future as they organise their own careers week.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, work experience opportunities for Year 11 students at the Europa School in Culham have been limited.

However, with the help of the careers department, they have now planned their own careers week from June 30 to July 6, the last week of summer term.

The week will consist of several interactive half-day workshops that teach pupils the essential skills needed in different workplaces.

Sam Matthews, one of the students organising the event, said: “It is crucial that we have access to such opportunities as we approach one of the most vital points in our educational journey.

“We need all the experience we can get to allow us to make an informed decision about how we continue with our careers and our lives.”

Pupils are currently seeking the support of local businesses to bring their plans to life.
