Mansfield & Ashfield 2020 together we mean business
Carl Atkin, Headteacher at Brunts said “The evening was about opening the minds of a selected group of year 10’s to the wide range of career opportunities with local employers. Employers play a key role in inspiring young people to achieve their potential and understand the importance of English and Maths qualifications in the workplace”
The following employers supported the Careers Inspiration Evening: Warburtons, Lindhurst Engineering, Dijitul UK, Pendragon, Woodheads, County Battery Services, Mansfield & Ashfield 2020, Dalmation System Ltd, Army, Visit Nottingham, Sherwood Trust Hospitals, Confetti, Laing O’Rourke, Mansfield District Council and SEMTA.
Richard Fuller, County Battery Services and Enterprise Advisor for The Brunts Academy said “It was an inspirational evening and having the opportunity to talk to small group of students with their families was a great way to tell ‘career stories’ about the workplace and the wealth of opportunities available on their doorstep”
The event was organised by Berni Dickinson, Director of Marketing & Community Engagement for the Evolve Trust and Jane Evans, Director of Learning English for The Brunts Academy. It was a small-scale pilot, linked to a research project Jane is carrying out to understand the impact of employer engagement has on students attainment in Maths & English and work experience choices. A number of students secured work experience placements during the evening.
Nathan Ellis, a Brunts student said, “It was a really useful evening and I have been offered a work experience placement with Dave Hartshorne at Dijitul which I am really excited about”
Employers, students and parents gave such positive feedback that plans are now being made to organise a bigger event next year for all students in year 10 and year 11.
