On Friday, Metnor staff took part in Mock interviews with Newcastle 6th Form College. The experience proved invaluable for both students and staff. Engaging in CSR activities such as these provides a reflective break for staff, working in such a busy industry its important to get away from the daily stresses of the office and give back to the community.
“Newcastle Sixth Form College are delighted to be partnered with Metnor Construction as part of the North East Ambition programme. This demonstrates our commitment to achieving the Gatsby Benchmarks and to continue strengthening our careers education programme. Metnor’s support and expertise will be invaluable in ensuring that our students continue to receive high quality careers guidance opportunities and to understand and develop the skills they need to successfully progress into the world of work.” David Coe, transition and progression coordinator, Newcastle 6th Form College
Denis Heaney, Enterprise Advisor at the North East LEP, whose role it is to match businesses with schools said, ‘We ultimately want to create a thriving economy that has more and better jobs for people who work in the North East. This programme has a huge part to play in that.
It is important that all young people in schools and colleges have the right attitudes, skills and knowledge as well as formal qualifications to allow them to succeed in the world of work.
Research shows that students who have more meaningful engagement and interactions with businesses whilst in education, have enriched experiences and understanding of job opportunities when leaving education. I am thrilled that Metnor Construction is working with Newcastle 6th Form as part of the Enterprise Advisor programme and I am excited to see the impact that it has for its students’.
