Sam has been instrumental in the planning and implementation of WRL and Enterprise Activities at Guilsborough School this year. Students have had access to a variety of different information from CV and Interview preparation through to Logistics and Engineering challenges thanks to the hard-work that Sam puts in. All events which have been organised in conjunction with Sam have been attended by a large number of skilled and enthusiastic industry volunteers. These volunteers have really helped to inspire the students and give them a real-world perspective on a variety of WRL and Enterprise activities. Sam always provides a high level of support for all events that we work on together and is accessible far beyond the requirements of the normal working day.

Thank you so much for today â€“ a fab start to a new brand of flexible learning days at KHS.

Samâ€™s contribution to Campion School has been outstanding over the years. This is the first year I have worked with Sam and I have found her expertise, enthusiasm and drive to be invaluable. She has offered both advice and resources to help with both drop-down days and PHSE lessons. Samâ€™s greatest contribution has been the number of employerâ€™s she has provided for these day, which without them, the days would not have been as successful. She briefs them in details before they work with the students to enable the days to run smoothly. So far this year, we will have had the expertise and knowledge of over 80 employer work with students at Campion.

Samantha has worked with Sponne school to arrange employer visits for Sixth Form students to enable them to have CV workshops and mock interviews. She has also arranged for a variety of employers to speak to Yr10 students about their careers and give them insight into the world of law, engineering, accounting and logistics to name but a few. She has worked professionally and tirelessly to ensure these days run smoothly so the students and the employers time has been well used and both gain from the experience. We could not run these events without her dedication and enthusiasm and look forward to continuing this for a long time to come.
