Sir Vince Cable came to Rivers Academy to talk to our Post 16 students about his career in politics.
The talk covered his political career and gave an overview of how he got in to politics and how his journey and career panned out. The talk also included some encouraging words on how the students could get involved in a life and career in politics if it were something that interested them, and even if they did not want the career, then there are still local issues to get involved with to make positive change.
Following the talk there was an excellent Q&A session, where Sir Vince Cable was extremely open and honest about his thoughts. It was really interesting to see what questions the students had for him and how he would go about answering them.We would like to thank Sir Vince Cable for this talk and thanks also to Speakers for Schools for recruiting this speaker and giving us the opportunity to host him.
