The Business of Education
When we're not busy showing others how to be IT savvy we love a worthwhile opportunity to practice what we preach and demonstrate IT in action.
Our mission - to support St Robert of Newminster School and Sixth Form College to build strong connections with local employers.
Using Microsoft Office for planning, scheduling, creating documents and a host of spreadsheets for data management, alongside free digital applications such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Eventbrite and email marketing tools a 'paper-free' project to host a business networking event on the school premises is planned, promoted and executed.
Attendees were invited to register as part of a lasting partnership with the school to support students in a variety of ways both in school and out in the workplace.
Working together in Partnership to develop the next generation of employees.
Working in partnership and engaging with local employers, other education and training providers, and their professional communities will improve the number, range and quality of options available for work experience, job shadowing, work placements, apprenticeships and employment opportunities.
An insight into the world of work can be a game changing experience for young people.
The event was only possible with the kind support and sponsorship of amazing local businesses:
