On Thursday 3rd March, Barry Comprehensive School’s main hall was filled with companies, businesses and organisations welcoming students to the annual careers fair.

Hundreds of students from years 10, 11, 12 and 13 visited the stalls to find out about the opportunities in the workplace and in further education.

Business visitors ranged from the global to the local and included, BMW, CITB, Dow Corning, Greenwich Communities, Holder Mathias Architects, IQE, Keep Moat, Blackhorse, Lloyds, Principality, RAF and Renishaw.

Other organisations included ACT, Careers Wales, Cardiff City Council, Languages Cymru, RTPI and South Wales Police.

Welsh Universities were also keen let students know what they had to offer, with stands from Cardiff Metropolitan, Cardiff University, and the University of South Wales.

Cardiff and Vale College also provided information on their courses, including aircraft engineering. Their stand included a flight simulator for students to try out under the guidance of Josh, a former Barry Comprehensive student now studying at the College.

The school is grateful to all the attendees for their time and commitment to showing students some of the huge range opportunities available to them.
