Organised by The Ely Schools Partnership - a group of 12 schools from Ely, Littleport and Little Downham, children from Year 5 and 8 got the chance to meet employers and talk about possible careers.

Representatives from Enterprise East Cambridgeshire, Ryal Air Force, G’s Fresh, Cambridgeshire Constabulary and Cambridge Regional College were on hand to explain to students what is involved in their job.
