Nick Owen, chairman of North West Europe for Deloitte, and Lauren Clarke from Deloitte, visited Whalley Range 11-18 High School on Tuesday 30th January 2018 to discover for themselves how students have benefited from the partnership.
Four Year 13 students, Loujane, Bareera, Halima and Regina, passionately explained to them how through the mentoring sessions they:
- Had developed their self-confidence
- Gained a broader perspective with regards to career choices
- Received valuable guidance and support when writing their UCAS references and CVs
- Valued the opportunity to have mock interviews and receive tips of how to remain calm in an interview situation
The students said that this was a day they would remember for a long time and the partnership is really making an impact on their life choices.
