Looking to the future
Youngsters at All Saints Academy are now more aware of the possibilities that a career in optics can offer, thanks to Specsavers in Sainsbury’s on the Gallagher Retail Park in Cheltenham.
Seeing Things Differently
PR coordinator, Emily Ashman, was in attendance at their careers fair to chat to students offer help and advice about careers in optics.
Pupils aged between 11 and 17 visited the Specsavers stand where Emily was handing out the Seeing Things Differently leaflet to help explain the different ways you can enter the profession.
‘It was great to chat to the pupils and explain the huge variety of roles that are available,’ said Emily. ‘They all seemed really interested and hopefully I was able to inform some of them who might not have previously considered optics.
'Encouraging youngsters into the profession is hugely important and we’re already thinking about our attendace at the next careers fair.’
