The Royal Air Force, the Army and the Prison Service – complete with sniffer dog Ranger – were among exhibitors at a special careers day at Cambridge Regional College.
Hundreds of students flocked to the event to find out more about jobs in the Uniformed Services and sports and leisure industries in the first fair of its kind for the specialist areas.
Organised by lecturer Cathy Watts, the day also attracted the police force and sports and coaching organisations, with higher education students at CRC talking about progression on to HNC and HND courses at the college.
CRC student football activators were also at the fair, helping to promote football in a big way at the college, while the Specials arrived with their handcuffs – and tried them out on a willing student.
Cathy said the careers fair had been very successful.
“The day was a big success, with the exhibitors providing very useful and practical information about careers in their areas and inspiring the students to think about all the options open to them,” she said.
“It was wonderful to see so many students taking part and their interest in the great range of careers available to them once they have finished their Uniformed Services and Sport Studies qualifications.
“A big thank you to everyone who came along and supported the fair by offering advice and information – and particularly to the prison service for bringing Ranger along.”
