Careers Event at Grange Technology College

Careers Event at Grange Technology College

Tuesday 10th January 2017

Thorite was recently invited to provide a representation at a careers event which took place at Grange Technology College - part of Southfield Grange Trust in Bradford

The aim of the event was to give the students between the ages of 13 and 16 an insight into the range of opportunities on the job market. Often only high profile or cliché roles are considered by students and a view can be taken that everyone within a certain sector (e.g. the legal sector), does a certain role (e.g. a lawyer), when there are many supporting roles in an organisation for example partner, head of division, solicitor, barrister, accountant, administrator, maintenance, café worker, facilities, security.

The event took place on the 12th October 2016 and was arranged by Ahead Partnership, a not for profit business that provides support and creates links between businesses, schools and community groups to allow businesses of all sizes to play a hands-on role in their local community.

Our local Key Account manager, Kevin Johns attended the event with help from one of Thorite’s young apprentices, Chris Scott who helped to give a balanced view of working for Thorite.

Feedback from the organisers was very encouraging:

“Just wanted to send a massive thank you for your support on Wednesday’s careers event at Grange Technical College, Bradford.”

“The feedback from the school has been really positive and it was great to have people from different backgrounds involved during the day. The school was particular impressed at the level of interaction you showed with the students, which is great feedback!”

“Many thanks for supporting the event. It went down relay well and it was great having Thorite along – Both volunteers (Kevin Johns and Chris Scott) were excellent with the students and it was a great alternative having you along ……”
