It was great to see such an inspiring project that sees the BBC Bitesize team take to the road to deliver a series of 1-hour career sessions to secondary school children. Our Levenshulme High School’s hall was set up like a ‘Question Time’ style setup featuring a panel of 3 professionals that had a career within the creative industry.
The event was hosted by Nick Bright who is a British Radio and television presenter. He currently hosts Saturday mid mornings on BBC Radio 1Xtra, The Squad on BBC Radio 5 Live, Sundays at midday, numerous different projects for BBC Sport and the Arsenal Matchday Show.
The aim of the event was to offer insight into the world of work and shine a light on routes into and opportunities within a sector that many of the pupils might not have considered. Students also participated in a Question and Answer session where they got the chance to learn more about the creative industry and about future jobs.
