Our Health & Social Care and Children’s Play Learning & Development students enjoyed an invaluable day off timetable this week to attend the Vision in VSS Day, a careers event here at B6. As part of the day, a variety of universities, subject-specific speakers and local employers came in to share their experiences.

Two of the talks were delivered by B6 Alumni with Lewis Roper, a former Outwood Academy Hindley speaking on ‘My Route to Become a Paramedic’ and Olivia Maloney and Emma Stott, both former Thornleigh Salesian College students delivering a presentation on where studying at Children’s Play Learning & Development at B6 can take you.
