Cadet Programme Supports Next Generation of Young Professionals
The Cadet programme at St Ambrose Barlow Sixth Form College was launched this week, offering students the opportunity to work alongside Business and Industry partners in order to support the next generation of young professionals.
Through the programme the college is working with a number of businesses to link students with professional individuals and companies. Developing these links is imperative to helping students succeed, not only at college but also in their future education and careers. The students have identified areas in which they have an interest and will be placed with the appropriate industry to gain an insight into it and also to gain work experience. The programme is available in a number of areas including Law, Medicine, Teaching, Manufacturing and Engineering, Construction, Accounting and Auditing, Marketing, and Creative and Digital.
Business tutor Sally Cheshire launched the event and has worked to build links with businesses and individuals in the Greater Manchester area. She said: “Business engagement is essential to developing our students into young professionals. We wish our cadets lots of success on this programme.”
