I want to complain about this content:

  • Well said Rebecca Horn! The councillor's comment that not everyone can be a scientist etc, demonstrates why there is so little aspiration for school leavers in the county. If our local politicians can't understand the benefits of encouraging this type of growth, on their doorstep, then what hope is there for our young people having access to interesting, stimulating career opportunities in the region. As someone who is involved in working with schools to help students learn how to research different sectors and the potential career opportunities, we generally find all they think there is locally is Aviva, Colmans or tourism. Whilst I don't have anything against these companies, the lack of understanding about what other options are available is an absolute travesty. There are so many other interesting, world leading companies who simply cannot recruit employees with the right skills and qualifications locally. This could change if more was done to support and promote growth industries and the opportunities they offer.
