Students enjoy Business Mentoring!

Business Mentoring

Our Envision enrichment students have been busy again in their most recent session at GKN in Redditch.  This week's business mentoring session saw 10 GKN business mentors working with our 23 students to tackle problem solving, developing key transferable skills to support our students' development. 

Students were working with their mentors to come up with some practical solutions to any problems the teams are facing with their projects! Problem solving is one of the 4 key skills that the students are developing as part of their Community Apprentice programme.

Check out what the group got up to here:

Product Design at Cadbury World

This week, 3D Design and Product Design students visited Cadbury World to support their studies.

The students first enjoyed a tour of the factory, with a predominant focus on the manufacturing and engineering areas.  Cadbury World apprentices joined the group on their tour, and highlighted the benefits of the apprenticeship scheme to our students. In the afternoon, the students were set a product design task which they all worked on very well. They had to design a new product for Cadbury World with a theme and session in mind. They worked in small groups and had to draw designs, model examples with modelling clay and present it to the Cadbury engineers.

Charlie Clarke, George Crabtree and Stella Blizzard won the challenge with a Valentine's themed design.

Bang Out Of Order!

On Friday 13th January 2017, Cadbury's group of BTEC L2 First Award Performing Arts students took to the stage to perform the powerful script which explored the issues surrounding antisocial behaviour.  

A complex and well crafted piece of theatre, combining comedy as a perfect counterfoil to its serious elements, with moments of frivolity adding real poignancy to the final outcome. Following a group of teenager 'hoodies', the play wa as entertaining as it was insightful and challenging. The true-to-life script employed a mixture of naturalism that pulled no punches, stylised movement that moved the action along and mixed media that added another dimension.
