In support of National Apprenticeship week, Year 12 and 13 students at Rushden Academy have been inspired by an array of visitors from local industry and business via a careers speed dating event which was facilitated by Northampton University. 

They welcomed visitors from: 

  • Navy
  • RAF
  • Police
  • NHS
  • Cummins
  • IGUS
  • VW Group
  • Evolve Business Coaching
  • Ortec
  • Scott Bader
  • Howdens
  • Satra
  • AFP Services
  • Whitworths
  • NLIVE!
  • Northampton University 

The 6th form students had 7 minutes with each professional to discuss careers, qualifications, experiences and future plans, with a view to informing their post 18 career plans and university choices. Many also got the opportunity to discuss work shadowing placement possibilities for when they take part in their Futures Week later in the year.  

The students were actively involved in the event which is the second one to run this academic year and were ambassadors for the academy. 

“This event has been a huge success and the students were ambassadors for the academy. We would like to thank all of the visitors for taking time out of their busy schedules and  Northampton University and the Aspire Higher team for coordinating this event. Their contribution to our PSHE and careers program this year has been outstanding. The professionals that attended have inspired our students and opened their eyes to careers that they maybe wouldn’t have considered previously”.
