Nigel Kay, our Business Development Manager/Director has spent a day with year 10 students at the Kings of Wessex Academy in Cheddar. The purpose of the day is to give the students an insight into working life prior to them going out on work experience and they do teamwork exercises as well as realising how their educational skills can translate into the work place.
“ I run a business exercise that requires the students to develop a strategy to overcome competition from a larger organisation. We then look at the commerciality of their ideas. Often there are some really clever and well thought through strategies; we’ve employed 1 or 2 ourselves, Nigel admitted.
Kings of Wessex Academy are to be congratulated in bringing students and business together is such a way.
