More than 600 children descended on Lakes College today, as the popular Jobs in our Community event returned for its 17th year.

Year 6 children from 18 primary schools across Allerdale and Copeland came together to interact with local employers and experience a flavour of working life.

Run by career management company Inspira, the event helps to raise aspirations, broaden horizons and excite young minds about future career possibilities. It gives children who are about to make the transition to secondary school a direct encounter with the world of work.

The day event consists of meeting employers from various industries and taking part in hands-on, practical activities, such as hair styling, physical agility challenges, slime-making, blood pressure measurement, and pyramid construction, to name just a few.
