“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.
