In September, Turnstone House hosted a Careers Day, organised by our Careers, Information and Guidance Advisor. Local businesses were invited to attend, including representatives from the car industry, health and beauty, deep water fishing, police and army.
Stands were set up in the hall and remained onsite for the whole day to ensure there was plenty of time to ask questions and gather information about career options.
Young people from both Turnstone House and Avocet House visited the displays and engaged with the representatives confidently, spending time with them all. It was remarked afterwards how polite and interested the young people were.
The aim was to expand understanding of local job opportunities, and this was a great introduction to a wide range of possible careers. It is hoped that with this experience in mind, some of our young people will feel more confident when attending larger events elsewhere.
