What do you want to be when you grow up? More than 420 primary school children had a chance to think about that when they enjoyed a careers fair in Wisbech.
Nursing, youth work, horticulture, childcare, fire fighter, teaching or a solicitor were among the jobs represented at the event held at Thomas Clarkson Academy.
Organiser Annette Williams, of Wisbech Schools Partnership, said: “They have come along, asked questions, gathered information and started to give some thought about what they might like to do in the future.
“It will hopefully sow some seeds for later in their life. The feedback is really positive, the children are buzzing.”
It is the ninth year the careers event has been held.
