Angmering students learn about careers from STEM professionals

Students from The Angmering School have been hearing from industry professionals to encourage them to consider jobs in scientific fields.

Year seven pupils are researching jobs in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) as part of their futures lessons, to encourage consideration of a job in these areas when they leave school.

All students from the year group have had the opportunity to research a STEM job and interview a visiting STEM professional about what their career involves.
