Once again the UTC welcomed a number of businesses on 27th June to give Year 10 students an insight into different organisations, and their opportunities on offer.
We welcomed our longstanding industry partners Philips 66 and Cristal, and other companies such as On-Line Design and the Job Centre. With an hour spent with each company, students received extensive information about the company and industry, whilst also being able to ask plenty of questions.
Having a face to face chat with company representatives is a unique opportunity with significant benefits as students can ensure they make an impact on the company to aid applications to their roles, but also in developing their employability skills such as communication and networking. In addition, students have the opportunity to gain a thorough understanding of the companies and seek advice from industry experts.
