Another Successful School Partnership Event for Chamber Training

Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce Training (CWCCT) has delivered another successful careers day with a local school aimed at helping young people to prepare for their journey into the world of work.

With a strong track record of working in partnership with schools, CWCCT offers specialist advice and support to raise students’ awareness and understanding of what the labour market is about.  The team recently worked alongside 75 students from Cardinal Newman Catholic School, a coeducational secondary school for young people aged 11-18 in Coventry.

Commenting on the career-building sessions, Anita Tomsett, Apprenticeship Recruitment Lead at Chamber Training said: “We worked closely with the students to help them understand how to present themselves, create an eye-catching CV and develop their interview techniques. It was a pleasure to meet the students and they embraced the opportunity to learn about the world of work.

“They were a credit to the school and all of the students contributed fully to the sessions.  Hopefully the guidance and training advice will support their journey into the world of work.”

The informative day was organised by Marie Brennan, Careers Advisor and Co-ordinator at Cardinal Newman Catholic School and she added: “The informative session was very useful and I think it was pitched just right for getting the main points across, utilising the time available. We look forward to working with CWCCT in the future.”

CWCCT offers a wide range of apprenticeships and actively encourages employers across Coventry and Warwickshire to consider creating employment opportunities, particularly for young people.
