Kirsty Williams AM has opened the Powys Careers Festival at the Royal Welsh Showground in Llanelwedd, supporting young people in making decisions about their future.
The event connects young people with potential employers and aims to inform young people of the opportunities available to them when they leave compulsory education. It is organised by the multi-agency group Positive Pathways Powys.
Kirsty Williams, Assembly Member for Brecon and Radnorshire, said:
“Leaving compulsory education can be a huge step in anyone’s life. I want young people to have the information they need to make the best decision for them, so I was delighted to be able to open the Powys Careers Festival today.
“There were a wide range of people to speak to and potential employers to interact with, as well as hands-on workshops and demonstrations. I hope it was beneficial for our young people who attended.”
