Year 9 students Kerrin Moran and Erin Ford joined Malcolm Boyden on his Drive Time show as part of the BBC’s School Report initiative. They had spent the day researching and producing a report about the impact of the closure of the Connexions Careers Service in schools.

The girls were interviewed by Malcolm Boyden during peak listening time as many of Coventry’s residents were driving home from work listening to their radio.

They were asked about the closure of Connexions Service and Erin explained that although President Kennedy School had responded by employing its own careers professional, other schools may be left without any careers advisors which could adversely affect t the chances of students to enter higher education or find employment.  Kerrin explained that they had enjoyed the process of producing the report and she might consider journalism as a career. Asked what was is like at President Kennedy School, Erin said “it’s really good, there is a lot of support provided for the children.”
