Young people across Wiltshire have been given career advice away from the classroom as they watched a special drama, which was performed at 20 schools in the county.
The ‘Your Choices‘ performance uses drama to outline the education and training choices available to young people aged 12 to 14 years old.
The tour has been commissioned by the Careers and Enterprise Company through the Swindon and Wiltshire Enterprise Adviser Network and Wiltshire Council. It complements the activities the Enterprise Adviser Network is creating by connecting local businesses and schools/colleges in the area to help raise the aspirations of young people.
The Your Choices theatre tour performed by the Solomon Theatre Company follows the journey of three young people as they make important decisions about their future. The humorous and heart-warming story features three friends who grow in confidence and find their own way through a maze of subject choices and career options. The characters give a powerful message about the importance of self-belief and finding their own individual routes to further education and employment.
“This is an excellent way to engage our young people to consider their future choices at a time when they are starting to consider their future careers”
Laura Mayes, cabinet member for children
