Our female CCF contingent found out about careers in Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) at a specialised event.

The 14-strong cohort, from Years 8 and 9, attended the STEM Careers Showcase at the prestigious Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst.

Together with Head of Careers, Miss Rana, the group learned how to access professions which are deemed traditionally difficult-to-reach for females.

The day featured interactive STEM-based interactive activities, business and military work-place information hubs and informal lectures from STEM female role models.

Aimed at 11-15 year-old girls, who study CCF, it was a joint venture between the Army and industry to showcase the breadth of educational and career pathways into STEM careers for young aspiring female students.

Miss Rana said: “The girls came away believing they could do well in jobs that they may not have considered.

“They engaged really well in all the workshops and seminars and made the most of the expert advice on-hand too.”
