These exercises really get the participants thinking about what it takes to succeed in the world of work and the Brokerage are first-rate at relating that to the student's current circumstances. I have seen these exercises regularly with the groups I take up to the Square Mile for 'Working in the City' workshops, but inevitably numbers are limited on this programme.
The Outreach Programme allows the Brokerage to engage many more of our young people and they are happy to work with a diverse range of our students, whatever their ability and attitude to learning.
When organising our enterprise events it has been invaluable to know that, if they can, the Brokerage will help and that when they arrive they can just come in and get on with it. Their visits to school coupled with our visits to the City and the City Business Traineeship programme that our sixth formers can apply to mean that we know each other very well now and this has helped us build an effective partnership that benefits many of our young people.
