The visit aimed to give our students some experience of a workplace environment where students explored the wide variety of job roles in the company. They had the opportunity to ask employees about their specific roles, what they do on a day to day basis and how they contribute to the wider company aims.
Students discovered the skills and qualities that employers are looking for in their workforce, however, eating copious amounts of biscuits wasn’t one of them! They looked at the skills they already had to offer even at 14 years old and how they need to develop further to be able to achieve their current career aspirations.
I would like to thank Brother UK and Gemma Crozier for allowing us to visit and for being so invested in our students.
