Over the last few weeks, some Year 10 students have been taking part in “Amplify Me” networking sessions organised by My Local Village Network. Throughout the 6 weeks pupils learnt the benefits of networking, had a chance to explore skills required in the workplace as well as learn from local professionals regarding their own career journeys.
During the final session the young people visited Notting Hill Genesis Headquarters. They did an exemplary job of presenting all they had learnt to their peers, mentors and Notting Hill Genesis staff members.
We received some wonderful feedback from their mentors at Wates:
“It’s unbelievable how far their confidence levels have come since the start of the programme.”
“We are very impressed with what they have achieved over a very short amount of time.”
The students get to keep their booklets and can refer to them at any time to assist in their continued development.
