School to work transitions

Thursday 21st March 2019

As part of our partnership with ThinkForward we offer business insight days to local schools that are involved in the school to work transition programme.

business insight days

Last week we welcomed two groups of students, one from Nottingham University Samworth Academy and the other from The Nottingham Academy.

The morning allows them to connect with, and get experience of, the world of work. Throughout the morning the students were involved in a variety of tasks to showcase the range of skills and opportunities that one workplace has to offer.

Hoodies competition 2019

The students from The Nottingham Academy and Nottingham University Samworth Academy will also be taking part in our hoodies competition. We have asked the students to get their creative heads on and come up with a brand new design to go onto the back of our hoodies.

The winning design will feature in our 2020 leavers hoodies range and be available for schools to purchase.
