One-off opportunity for Years 9 & 10
Designed to give students an insight into studying a wide range of subjects at university and the reality of the day to day experience in each career, we are incredibly excited to introduce to Northamptonshire our Car Crash Careers Day event for the third year running.
During 2018 students had the opportunity to witness the immediate after effects of a simulated crash, including seeing those involved (played by students from the University’s acting course) being ‘cut out’ of the car by real-life members of Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service. University of Northampton Policing students were also on hand, ‘arresting’ both drivers for different offences as were Paramedic Science students who attended to the injured.
Then, through a series of workshops with University of Northampton lecturers, the students looked at the roles various professions played in giving care and support afterwards or otherwise working with those involved in the crash.
The aim was for the students to get an in depth look at career options on offer that they might not be aware of and to challenge the perceptions they might hold about these professions.
Our aim is to replicate this again at our brand-new Waterside campus in June 2019.
