The latest event in the Quinton House careers programme was a visit from prestigious Aston Martin.
Students were excited to learn about Aston Martin, the company, from design to production and find out about the vast range of careers involved in one of the world’s most recognisable and iconic brands. Speakers inspired pupils with STEM-related career options as well as the many opportunities in the fields of marketing, finance and production.
A range of careers talks from a range of professionals is arranged each year to inform pupils in Years 9 to 13 of possible careers and specific career paths. Skills workshops, visits to careers fairs and the forthcoming Career Pathways event in April are just some of the activities arranged for students to help them make appropriate career decisions.
Bal Choda, an Aston Martin engineer who volunteers as Aston Martin’s ambassador promoting links between schools and industry, presented with Graduate Engineer, Imogen Howarth, explaining career paths from school to the workplace as well as showcasing the automotive sector.
Pupils were then invited to take a closer look at the visiting Aston Martin car before thanking Bal and Imogen for giving them an insight into this aspirational brand.
