â€śI have really enjoyed the day. It has been a great opportunity for me to share my knowledge and experience with the Year 8 students. Despite the students being in an early stage of their secondary education, it gives them the chance to get away from the day-to-day class and put into practice other skills they will need to develop in their future careersâ€ť.

Thank you very much for your email.
AG was a pleasure to have and we would be delighted to have any future students who are interested in Interior Design.
You are the first school/college to acknowledge us taking students so thank you.
Many thanks for this, it will look good on the wall.
Iâ€™m glad we could offer a placement.
Myself and Sharnee from Adecco would just like to let you know what a pleasure it was to come down and meet the students . All of the students in our class were very pleasant and more interactive than I imagined. Despite it being a bit of a boring topic sometimes they all seemed to know quite a lot and there was some fantastic students in our class who knew so much!!
I hope the students found it useful and managed to get a head start on creating their own CVâ€™s.
Many thanks for inviting us.

Thanks for the opportunity to learn from these young students and to talk about my business.
Just wanted to send you a short note regarding todayâ€™s speed interview session at Shenley Brook End.
I must confess to being slightly apprehensive beforehand, as this is the first time that I have participated in an event like this.
I have to say that I found it very rewarding. The Y10 pupils were very attentive and I genuinely felt that they were benefitting from the whole experience.
By: Anthony Britton
Thank you for allowing me to take part. Another great day for the kids they were fully engaged and enjoyed the challenge.
Shame you never got to throw the curve balls in, but there were some great ideas and designs.
Sorry I missed the last few minutes. LEt me know if you are stuck in future and I will try and help out. If not see you next year.
Hello, just wanted to say thanks for making yesterday's event run so smoothly! The students were all great - very pleasant, polite and interested. I was lucky to have a high proportion who were interested in science and medicine, so hopefully it was interesting for them too. The route into my job was not intentional - I had no idea my job existed until I applied for it 10 years ago - and I think that may have helped some of them realise the rest of their life does not hinge on what they choose now. Thanks, and hopefully see you next year!
By: Lindsay Napier
The pupils were attentive, engaged and keen to learn, lots of questions in the feedback session. They appeared genuinely appreciative for the experience. I look forward to doing it again next year.
By: Andrew P Davies
Good to see you again yesterday.
I thought the event was great as where Iâ€™ve done careers talks before you find that maybe a handful of students are interested in law whereas the rest donâ€™t want to be there, so this smaller groups format was a really good idea.
If there are any others that you need a Solicitor to help out at then Iâ€™d be more than happy to do so. I work in Kettering but live in Rugby so can cover off a fairly wide geographical area if needed.
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you for all your hard work organising the business breakfast it was a great event and I have had so many students talk to me opportunities open to them. I am getting some feedback from the tutor groups tomorrow so can pass this onto you.
I will also ensure I send the pictures across to. Thanks once again.

A massive thank you to all involved in this. I want to thank Emma Pearson
for organising all of this and to Sam Fitzgerald (the outside business
person from Proactive Education) who was enthusiastic and organised the
business people (one ex-Shenley Brook End students in there too!).
I would say, talking to business people, students and staff that it went

Hi Sam, just a note to say what a lovely group of young people we met at Campion yesterday. They were largely shy and some were nervous but all were polite, listened and i hope seemed to get a lot out of the experience. It was a pleasure to help such lovely youngters in how to think about interviews.
Please pass on my compliments to the Head Teacher!
By: Elli Durante
Thank you so much for inviting us to Kineton School. I thoroughly enjoyed the morning. The students were a pleasure to work with!

I donâ€™t know what it is that you do that means all our ambassadors have such a great time volunteering with you â€“ but whatever it is keep doing it!

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.
