Staff from Bedford College met hundreds of school students looking ahead at further education and careers during an event in the town.
The college team were among a number of businesses and organisations at the showcase Your Future event, hosted by Bedfordshire Chamber at Kings House, Ampthill Road, Bedford.
Businesses across the county have been invited to get involved with the government-funded project designed to inspire, enthuse and motivate young people to think about career options and how to make the most of their remaining time in education.
Bedfordshire Chamber is hosting two events as part of the Your Future project giving local businesses an opportunity to exhibit and promote themselves to young people aged 14 to 25.
A second event is being held on February 25 at the UK Centre for Carnival Arts, Luton.
The college team launched their Have a Go personality profiling game to encourage young people to think what they enjoyed doing away from the classroom.
Bedford College is an active member of the Bedfordshire Chamber with principal and CEO Ian Pryce being a business ambassador.
