Recently (and as part of our Raising Aspirations Programme), a group of Year 9 HAT students had the opportunity to work with a range of representatives from different parts of the Food and Drink industry.
The workshop was organised through the IGD (Institute of Grocery Distributors).
The students learnt about the importance of presenting yourself in a professional manner, and were able to quiz the volunteers about their day-to-day jobs, learning about their career paths and the sort of skills necessary to develop a successful career. Students were surprised to learn how many different types of jobs there are within that single sector. It was great to see how much the students developed, even over a relatively short period of time.
Many congratulations to them for their proactive approach to the session and for their valuable contributions.
