Feedback “I might consider it (social care) in the future because I really like the idea of helping other people.” (primary school student) “I changed my mind because I didn’t know the variety of jobs within social care. I will look further into options that I have been given.” (secondary school student) “I think from what I have heard today that an apprenticeship would be a very interesting experience, plus you get the chance to move up higher” (sixth form college student)
