Business Class Partnership Kicks Off with Visit to Tata Steel
14 / 11 / 2017
We're proud to announce our brand new Business Class partnership with Ysgol Gymareg Ystalyfera-Bro Dur through the help of Business in the Community, Careers Wales and the Welsh Government. The link Buffoon Film and Media now has with the school enables a closer relationship between education and industry for the students through the help of our staff, clients and suppliers.
Business Class is a tried and tested programme, developed by Business in the Community, that builds lasting partnerships between business and schools in Wales. Those partnerships, based firmly on the needs of the school and the priorities of the business, will transform the life chances of young people and develop talented employees for the future. By bringing business and schools together in a structured way, Business Class improves young people’s understanding of the world of work and their awareness of career choices, and develops their employability skills. Business Class provides holistic support to help schools develop a more effective environment for learners.
We were pleased to kick start our partnership by organising a visit for keen engineering students at the school to Tata Steel in Port Talbot, a client of ours for five years and we are very grateful for the opportunity that they gave to the students. We are now in discussion to organise further visits with other industries and supporting the school with their enterprise initiatives.
