Have your say

Carerrs advice will be dished out to Year 9 children this month in a huge event at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

The Your Future Your Choice event will see 1,500 Year 9 pupils visit the resort attraction to research career ideas before making their option choices.

The two-day event ran last year with Blackpool Council, schools, colleges, training providers and employers working together.

Representatives from all eight Blackpool secondary schools meet and work together as part of Blackpool Community Guidance group.

Tina Milner from St George’s School who chairs the group said: “Last year’s event was fantastic with partners and employers giving up their time to support Blackpool’s young people, at this important stage in their education.

“It is great that the schools can work together for the benefit of Blackpool’s young people.

“Quality advice and guidance is so important in raising the aspirations of pupils.” The event will run on January 31 and February 1.
