Evesham Editorial 6th Feb, 2015 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

WOMEN in business in Evesham came together to support Prince Henry’s High School for a motivational careers event for girls.

Year 11 girls were given the opportunity to explore various career paths within certain industries and learn about the options they need to consider upon completing their GCSEs this summer.

Design and Technology teacher, Carolyn Wareham who coordinated the event said: “The careers workshop has really shown the girls what can result from hard work, dedication and self-motivation.

“This has inspired the girls to work harder, and instead of perceiving their GCSE’s as something to fear, they are pushing for better results to achieve their individual goals.

“Thank you to all local business representatives for making this possible,” she added.

Among those at the event were Hannah Haffield, West Midlands Young Person in Business award winner and Senior Account Executive at Quicksilver PR and Corporal Amy McFarlane from the Army.

Hannah Haffield said: “As an Evesham based business, Quicksilver PR always aims to support the local community where possible and as a result I was more than happy to attend the Prince Henry’s careers event, particularly as we were demonstrating some real girl power!

“Overall I think the workshop was a great success.

“All of the girls were engaged and interested in the different career paths that were presented, and how they could use our experiences as speakers to guide their future decisions,” she added.
