Business Insight Workshop - Student Visit From The Bulwell Academy
Wednesday 5th December 2018
Last week we welcomed a small group of students from The Bulwell Academy to take part in a business insight workshop. The students are a part of the ThinkForward programme, which provides them with long term coaching and support to progress into sustained work.
Business insight day
The main focus was to give to the students an insight into life at Price & Buckland and the variety of skills and roles that we employ. Throughout the morning they were given the opportunity to shadow two key areas of the business. After this, it was their time to shine and put what they’d learnt into practice. With assistance, they each produced their own prints by following all of the stages included in the process.
As well as the practical side of the workshop they gained an insight into the career journeys of some of our employees. Covering all of the aspects that have given them work ready capabilities and what motivates them day to day. ThinkForward focus on the following during their coaching: organisation, drive, receptiveness, self-awareness, good communication, resilience and self-assurance.
WORKING WITH LOCAL BUSINESSES
By partnering with a range of businesses from local employers like ourselves, through to large, national companies ThinkForward can provide young people with relevant exposures to the workplace, in many cases bridging a gap that family and community networks are not able to provide.
