“Year 9’s get introduced to the World of Work”
On Friday 9th May MITIE PLC sent several of its staff to work with the entire Year 9 cohort for a “World of Work” day.
The students, who were treated as MITIE “employees” for the day, took part in various challenges. These included the design and creation of a wind-turbine; throughout the day students learnt about the world of work and working in teams, to produce quality results. The exceptionally strong business links forged by Greenwood Academy with MITIE continue to provide huge opportunities for the students to enhance their learning, as well as being able to secure apprenticeships and work-based learning opportunities for the future.
