This session is aimed to provide Year 11 students with career insight for a variety of roles within a specific sector. Before this session, all the students had received a careers information, advice and guidance (CIAG) interview and have been allocated to a session based on their future career aspirations. Speakers on the day attend for a one-hour time slot and will each talk about their job role, career pathways and answer any questions from the students. 
A student, Nina, said, “I attended the Hair and Beauty future pathways session. We learned top tips on how to get into the Hair and Beauty industry, including how to gain purposeful work experience. We got to practice different techniques of curling hair and hair care recommendations. The session was beneficial and has made me even more determined to enter this career sector.”
