Louth Academy Year 11 students were given access to a range of experts during a Careers Day held at the Academy.

A number of colleges and employers were on hand to talk about their courses and industries and to guide students in how to pursue their chosen careers.

Cpl David Matthews, Careers Officer with the Army in Lincoln, spoke to a number of students, including Josh Stewart-Grewar. Josh said: "I have already applied for Harrogate College to train as a Medical Paramedic or a Paratrooper. Cpl Matthews has given me good advice for my assessment."

Natalia Knol is interested in attending Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College. She said: "I would like to study Business and Economics at A Level. I am going to go to the Open Evening at Tollbar. I have heard the Business course is good and the teachers are very good."

The Careers Day was organised by Esther Allison, Louth Academy Citizenship Teacher, who said: "The event was very useful for all Year 11 students to see what their options are for the future. They gathered a lot of information form local colleges and employers and it gave them all plenty to think about. We are grateful to all of those who attended."
