Guest speaker was Dean Steninger, who is workforce development officer for Chelsea FC Foundation.

His visit builds on the school's long-established links with Chelsea through the flourishing STS Football Academy.

Mr Steninger told of his career path from Yeovil College to the present day, and he is proud to combine his work for Chelsea with other roles at both St Mary’s University and the Football Association.

He said: “I am extremely passionate to make a difference and to guide young individuals in the right direction.”
