Our Business Ambassadors, Rubie and Leo have been working with the Hastings Education Futures Trust’s ‘Working Ways’ project which involves primary and secondary children from local schools being given a guided learning walks around local businesses.
Twelve retail companies, in and around Priory Meadow Shopping Centre in Hastings, hosted eleven schools showing them what it was like to work in Hastings and specifically what it was like to work on their shop floor.
The ambassadors were shown back offices, delivery areas, stock areas, staff rooms and staff shared details of their team meetings, strategies and company policies. A ‘real life’ experience which would enable the children to see different and new opportunities. At their final meeting, the ambassadors were invited to Ashburnham Place, Battle, to give a presentation about what they had learned.
As their focus this time had been the banking institutions, Rubie and Leo presented what they had learneds through music - take a look!:
