Lorette Parker, head of careers at Collingwood College, Surrey, invites eight professionals to the school to talk about their careers in STEM-related professions.

Amongst the group are research scientists, engineers and project managers. Lorette hopes they will help motivate the students to consider STEM professions as a possible career path.

In small groups, the students interview the visitors, getting as much information as they can. They are expected to meet and greet the visitors in the same way they would act in a real job interview.

The experience proves to be an eye-opener for the students and many are surprised about the opportunities available in STEM professions.

This programme is part of a series looking at the careers available in STEM professions.
