Inaugural event for Tailored Education and a great example of client-focused bespoke programming
4th. October 2018
A Work Experience Month highlight is Tailored Education in Bolton just completing its inaugural Work Ready Week programme which was attended by up to fifteen Year 10 students from St. James Church of England High School every day. The week introduced the students to the concept of work readiness through wide ranging
sessions – from first aid and health and safety to CV preparation and interview techniques - combined with enterprise tasks to develop and hone vital work-based skills.
Tailored Education also arranged visits to a number of different companies around the Greater Manchester area so that the students could gain experience of the workplace environment and have the opportunity to ask questions. One of these visits included a Uniform Services Day when students gained valuable insight into the Police Force and Fire Brigade.
Now Tailored Education is busily planning for 2019 and has just convened its annual Work Experience Co-Ordinators’ meeting. This gives every school with which Tailored Education works the chance, not just to confirm logistics like numbers of students and dates, but also what specifics the school would like prioritised – e.g. one-to-ones; PSHE lessons; assemblies etc. Very precise and bespoke: the clue is in the name “Tailored Education!”
