News Students Enjoy Hybrid Work Experience Programme 29.06.2024

This week 30 Collyer’s level 2 students enjoyed a 3-day hybrid work experience programme.

Rebecca Adams, Director of Progression at Collyer’s, explained: “The busy hybrid programme combined ‘in person’ work readiness preparation, team building skills and assessment centre tasks with an online work experience course working from home.

“Our aim was to replicate the hybrid approach to working which many companies now adopt, supporting the students in getting ready for the world of work.”

Guest speakers included lively and interactive sessions from Ricky Whiting (CEO Itty Bitty Boutique & SEO Marketing Guru) and Deputy Principal Steve Martell. The content covered included top-tips for interview, personal-branding, identifying key skills for the workplace, increasing ‘visibility’ in the workplace, developing entrepreneurial skills, social media marketing and side hustle start ups.

Collyer’s Vice Principal (Pastoral) Andrea John was thrilled: “Huge thanks to our special guests and to our very own Rebecca Adams, Sarah Tillier and Julie Crysell for making this wonderful 3-day work transition experience programme possible.”
