Careers Talk – The Police

Old Westholmian Returns for Careers Talk

The focus of ‘Career of the Week’ was roles within the Police. Today, we were lucky to host a drop in session with PC Emma Barnes from Derbyshire Constabulary. Emma is a former pupil who kindly offered to come into School and spend lunchtime in the Careers Room with Mrs Hibberd, answering questions from students who are interested in pursuing a career in the Police Force. As well as explaining how she started her career and talking about real life incidents that she has faced at work, Emma also brought in her handcuffs and baton and demonstrated how they work!

The session has provided the students with a lot of useful information and we are very grateful to Emma for giving up her time to come back to Westholme.
