Solihull hosted its annual 'Sons and Daughters Day' last week with over 40 young people visiting mum and dad's work to find out what they get up to!
Proud parents from across our site who applied to the annual ‘Sons and Daughters Day’ got the chance to show to their offspring what magic they perform at work last week. From the looks on some of the faces of our Solihull kids, it proved what an inspiring experience it was.
One proud parent was Andy Duffen who works on the Customer Acceptance Line in FA2. Showing son Lewis the ropes as a Quality Inspector, he said, “My lad always asks me if he can come and have a look at the factory. This has given me the opportunity to show him around, meet my workmates and hopefully give him that little bit of inspiration to possibly want to work here in the future.” It was apparent by the big grin on Lewis' face that he had a great time. He explained, “It’s been amazing spending time with my dad and I’d really like to work here when I’m older.”
'Sons and Daughters Day’ is organised by Solihull’s Education Business Partnership Centre. Reena Kayani who runs the centre explained, “The day gives a fantastic opportunity for us to inspire our next generation of apprentices, engineers or even Plant Directors, whilst also giving something back to our colleagues.”
Don’t worry if you missed out on ‘Sons and Daughters Day’. You can apply for Work Experience which is open at various times throughout the year, for your child or members of your immediate family.
