Neale Wade Academy students were given an insight into a career in environmental health thanks to Fenland District Council.
Year 11 GCSE hospitality and catering students were given a glimpse at what life is like as an environmental health office by the council’s Dawn Sadler.
They learned about the work within the role – from carrying out food and safety inspection to investigating noise complaints and preventing air pollution.
Jenny Sinclair, the students’ teacher, said: “This was a great way for students to gain a practical understanding of an area within the hospitality and catering sector.
“Hearing from speakers who work closely with this sector is a valuable experience for students and will help with their future career choices.”

Councillor Mike Cornwell, the council’s cabinet member responsible for environmental health, said: “A lot of the work our environmental health team does is unseen but plays a vital role in helping keep our residents safe and well.
“The council is always happy to speak to students and people considering a role in this field, and give talks to schools to explain about the work that we do.”
