Matt and Grace from the Kimpton team, together with Charlotte Lawrence from Liverpool City Region Careers Hub, hosted Charlotte Goode and Ramat Suleiman from Prenton High School as part of a national pilot programme of Teacher Encounters.
These events aim to connect 1000 teachers with businesses across England to boost collaboration and improve young people’s career opportunities.
Studies show teachers are a key source of career inspiration for students. However, they want more information about the range of future options – in particular vocational and apprenticeship pathways – which are not a feature of their current training.
As part of the programme, Grace and Matt will be helping Charlotte and Ramat develop an English and Maths lesson plan that relates directly to our roles at Kimpton, so that students can see how the skills they’re learning at school will transfer to the world of work.
