Welwyn Garden City pupils were given a lesson in business thanks to a visitor from Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce.
Chamber chief executive Yolanda Rugg visited WGC’s Sir Frederic Osborn School to talk to Year 10 youngsters about the work of the chamber and how best they can prepare themselves for the world of work.
She was supported by two young employees from the chamber, Alex Brett and Courtney Black, who explained to the students the career pathways they had followed which had ended with them working for the chamber.
Pupil Georgia Hurd: “Ms Rugg made me think about taking the many opportunities which are there for you and to grab something special when it is there.”
Jack Evans added: “This session highlighted the many skills I am doing in school which apply to real life.”
