As part of Woodbrook Vale’s careers programme, a group of Year 10 students visited the ‘Speed Networking Event’ at Leicester Racecourse on Friday 3 November.
The event saw students from twelve schools/colleges who are part of the Leicester & Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) ‘speed network’ under timed conditions with employers from a whole host of different businesses and public sector organisations such as Hastings Direct, ASDA, Highcross Leicester, Laing O’Rourke, Next, British Gas and NHS. Students were organised into groups and spoke to different employers in bursts of six minutes. In that time, they asked employers about their job roles, organisations and the steps to employment.
Our Woodbrook Vale students were superb ambassadors for the school and found the day extremely inspiring, helping them make choices for life after Woodbrook Vale
