4 Year 10 students (Asa, Eve, Albi and Yasmin) attended a special career and future focused day the Wellcome Trust. Here they learnt about specific professions that work within the Wellcome Trust and spoke with many employees that work there across a range of different industries and departments. Students spent a large amount of time reflecting on their own ambitions, skills and interests and how these could inform their future choices when it comes to A Levels, degrees and professions. They also learnt about mental health and what the Wellcome Trust is working on to improve peoples wellbeing through the use of apps. Here are a few comments from the students about the day and what they learnt.


“it was interesting to get to talk to the communications officer about social media”


“it was good to get us thinking about our strengths and weaknesses”


“talking to all the volunteers was really interesting”
