Year 8 Finance Industry Taster Day

industry_taster_day1On Thursday, 13th July we were invited to take a group of Year 8 students to Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford to find out about life at our local university. The main focus was the opportunities available to students in the finance sector and the training and qualifications needed.

The students were involved in a number of workshops including cyber security, insurance and trading on the stock market. We were also taken on a tour of the university facilities including the gym, training hospital and library. At the end of the session the students took part in a quiz against over one hundred students from other schools and our very own Phoebe and Kayleigh both won a voucher! Well done to you both and to all the students who accompanied us and represented Tabor so well with their excellent behaviour and for getting involved in all the sessions and asking some brilliant questions.
