Harry Leach 2nd Feb, 2019

TUDOR Grange Academy in Redditch recently held a creative careers day to prepare students for life in the workplace.

The students met a variety of employers from different industries, including Fujitsu, Natwest and Mettis Aerospace.

Representatives from the RAF, police, fire service and Severn Area Rescue Association also held problem-solving workshops for students.

Headteacher Jodie Bolter said: “It was great to see the students have a chance to interact and problem solve in a work-like environment. The RAF activity was particularly impressive.

“I’m proud so many external companies were willing to come into our school to deliver such valuable teaching.”

There were also a number of dedicated revision sessions from data experts Elevate to help the Year 11s and Year 13s with their exam studies.

The day closed with a careers fair which saw 17 different organisations talk about apprenticeships, college courses and general careers advice.

Graham Bastock, college leader and organiser of the curriculum days said: “Students had the opportunity to learn about and develop their employment skills beyond class room work.

“They loved every minute of it. We are very grateful to everyone who made it possible.”
