Careers workshop for schools

This is one day interactive workshop targeting youngsters who have an interest in sport and who are looking for ideas on how to develop their careers.

There will be three keynote speakers plus a series of workshops where the students will be able to work interactively with careers advisors to plan their next steps.

Keynote Speakers

Andy Smith from Smash Life will present on “How to Be the Best Version of Yourself” and can give first hand insight on how he built his career and life from a difficult start growing up in care

Andy Jones will talk about how he built his career in teaching whilst pursuing his love of sport and experiencing the exhilaration of scoring a goal in the Champions League whilst playing semi-professionally in the Welsh League

Catherine Whitaker will provide fascinating insight on her career as a TV sports presenter working for Amazon Prime and who was given the responsibility of hosting the US Open TV coverage of the night of Emma Raducanu’s success

Held during the ITF World Tennis Tour W100 Shrewsbury at The Shrewsbury Club, which is the biggest womens tennis event in the UK outside of the grass court season, there will also be the chance to be inspired by world class tennis too as part of the day.

The event is FREE although students should bring their own lunch and schools can reserve places by emailing [email protected] or call 01743 467755
