Working with Gifted and Talented pupils is always a pleasure. They are willing to learn, have skills and can take a joke (and dish it out in return!).
Today I was at Aldridge School in Walsall delivering a Business Challenge. It was in two parts. Firstly they did a mini-challenge which was judged at their table and then they had to get up on stage for the main presentation.
Ann Glaze from DWP and Brian Coldicutt from South Staffs water kindly gave up their day to work with the teams and judge their presentations.
It’s great to give business the opportunity to come and see the calibre of young people. Some of these are ready to go into the workplace and do a great job. They will ace their exams and go on to great futures. Hopefully the Skills Development I offer through these activities will help on the way.
It was an inspiring end to the week.
