What do you get when you mix Halewood colleagues with 200 excited kids from All Saints? Well that’s easy….it’s useful skills and knowledge with a sprinkle of fun and games!
Our Drop Down days are always great fun and the recent one we held at All Saints was no different. The day helps to inspire kids to help them see what’s next when they finish school, giving them support with their studies and career planning.
The day also includes a great mix of interview skills, CV writing and hands on activities including buggy and bridge building.
The kids get to be competitive in their teams completing the building activities and it really teaches them the importance of team working and thinking a little differently, which is what the day is all about.
It also gets the wheels in motion for them to start thinking about career planning and what they’d like to do when they finish school.
Our colleagues who take part also get a lot out of the day, telling us that the inspiration works both ways, as the enthusiasm of the kids blows them away every time!
The kids always have a lot of questions and really love to hear about what it’s like to work in an organisation as big as Jaguar Land Rover. The most popular question is always how much does our CEO get paid – so a lot of them must have big aspirations! We can’t wait to see what they do!
A massive thank you to all the team who took part on the day.
