Inspiring the next generation

Students across Slough were given the chance to learn more about careers in construction as Osborne teamed up with the Haybrook College Trust.

Haybrook College Trust is committed to supporting the educational and personal development of young people with complex social and emotional needs in Slough and surrounding areas.

The Trust offers students personalised teaching and learning pathways that will enable them to achieve both academically and socially, with the aim of making the student feel like a valued member of society.

The event was organised in partnership with Slough Borough Council and Learning to Work. Learning to Work is a local organisation that links businesses with education to help prepare young people for the world of work.

Students took part in a variety of workshops to meet and engage with employers and find out about career options.

There were various businesses in attendance at the event, including the Army and Health Service.

Osborne delivered an ice breaker activity, followed by an interview quiz encouraging the students to think about interview techniques. The students then took part in an interactive activity where they had to work together as a team.

The session inspired many students to think about their own career possibilities and what opportunities are available within the industry.

Sahera Tariq, Client Services Co-ordinator, Slough Borough Council and Neal Allison, Community Investment Manager, Osborne Property Services who supported the event commented:

Sahera: “This was a great opportunity for young people to see the possibilities available to them after completion of their education, and for our partnership to be able to invest in the community. “

Neal: “It is important that we build strong relationships with schools and inform young people of the different careers which are available”.
