The latest Careers Café on Wednesday 2 March was another huge success and focused on the importance of literacy in the world of work.  Among the amazing guests we were supported by some incredible literacy figures including children’s book author Michelle Robinson, science fiction/fantasy writer John Walton and games designer Piotr Swietlek.

Over 700 students visited the main College Hall to listen to guest speaker’s talk about how literacy and the love of words have helped them to take advantage of all of the opportunities life presents.  

 

We were delighted to host the BBC Points West News Presenter Sarah-Jane Bungay who is a former Frome College student.  

 

 

 

The Mayor of Frome, Kate Bielby talked to students about her work, and was joined by former Mayor Helen Sprawson-White who talked about how literacy and the spoken word has helped with her charity and fundraising work.  Other guests provided useful insights into the application of literacy skills to a range of occupations including construction, theatre production, acting and museum work.
 

This extra Careers Cafe was a collaboration between Aron Schneider, Deputy Assistant Principal and Faculty Head for English, and the Next Steps Team at Frome College as part of the celebration of National Book Week.  All of the guest speakers are keen to keep in touch with the College and continue to contribute to the development of our young people. 

 

The next Careers Cafe will take place on Wednesday 16 March with a theme of science, engineering, maths, data, transport and logistics.  

College Principal, Mr Ball, thanked everyone who attended and continue to support the College and the invaluable help and advice given to our students.
