As part of the school curriculum, Arden secondary school in Solihull, West Midlands enlisted Paramount Recruitment to help young people turn their lesson objectives into science.
On Monday 3 October, Paramount engaged 90 year 9 & 10 pupils from Arden school to take part in ‘AIM Day’ encouraging pupils to consider their future careers through fun and engaging challenges.
Eugene McDaid, Director & Co Founder of Paramount Recruitment, said; “The day was a fantastic opportunity to get students thinking about the future of science and the potential career prospects this industry can offer.
“It was an honour for Paramount to be given the opportunity to host this challenge day. By embedding days like this into the school curriculum, it enables us to capture the fun that science really has to offer and shine a spotlight on the industry to the leaders of the future.”
As part of the day the students from Solihull were asked to take part in a genomics workshop whereby pupils had to map out protein DNA sequences and crack the codes to reveal the protein names. In addition, Paramount Recruitment explored the career options and various pathways to jobs in life sciences including, sequencing, analytics and medical communications.
Eugene McDaid concluded, “Its days like this that helps us to remember that young people are the future of the industry. It’s crucial that we lead by example and set realistic aspirations and goals for the students of today encouraging as many people as possible to consider a future education and career in the life sciences sector.”
