Just a reminder that work-wise will be running its now well established Get up to Speed with Employability Summer Academy throughout the summer holidays 2019 giving the opportunity to 14-18 year old students to gain valuable experiences of Industry and the Employability skills that employers are looking for.


Designed for young people keen to get a head start and a real taste of the world of work and for parents keen to help their son or daughter improve their employment and education prospects.
