Student Success!Posted on: 24/06/2019
Reaping the rewards of our results
Seeing the results of our efforts is one of the most rewarding things we can experience in our working lives and Joshua C, a Year 10 student at our Academy, had just that moment.
Josh was part of a group of Year 10 students who took part in a workshop/mentoring programme. This was a collaboration, led by the Department for Work & Pensions, whereby guest speakers from different industry sectors would come in and share their stories and experiences with our students. All of this was aimed at getting our students to continue to raise their aspiration, giving them more knowledge and insights into the working world, whilst having the support of a mentor guiding them through the process.
One of the activities involved a design competition, where the students had to create a design, the winner of which would be made up into a proper T-shirt. Josh showed his flair and creativity to great effect and was crowned the overall winner of the competition. Well done Josh.
