Youngsters were given the chance to explore the world of work at a special careers event which took place on Thursday.
The event, organised by the Ely Schools Partnership, ran at Ely College and was set up to help prepare students for their future careers.
Throughout the day representatives from a number of businesses and organisations met students to explain not only what their career/job involves but also to help them think about their career choices.
More than 500 Year 5 students attended the event from Downham Feoffees, Ely St John’s, Ely St Mary’s Junior, Lantern Community, Littleport Community and Millfield.
The morning sessions also included activities with an interactive theme to get the students involved in the event.
In the afternoon, the Year 9 students from Ely College were able to talk to exhibitors, firing career questions to gain an insight into the world of work.
Sponsorship for the event came from the ECU Trust and the Rotary Club of Littleport.
