Specsavers Clevedon are setting their sights on inspiring students from Clevedon School as part of the Clevedon Aspire Partnership (CAP).
The store was invited to join CAP along with other local businesses to help support youngsters make more informed career choices.
A word from the store director
Store director, Emma Perrigo, along with optometrist Krisha Chauhan attended a careers fair and sparked interest when talking to the students about a career in optometry at Specsavers. Emma has also taken part in a Be Inspired talk where she spoke to a smaller group to explain to them what they need to do to get into optometry.
‘We are really grateful for the opportunity to be able to talk to young people about getting into a career in optics,’ said Emma. ‘It’s great to be able to chat to students about a career option they may have never considered before.
‘The event was very busy with lots of students asking questions, so hopefully they found it helpful.’
