Staff at Ysgol Rhiwabon will be spending the day with local companies on Friday November 16th 2012 as part of the school’s approach to working more closely with business.
Business in the Community have been working with the school to ensure that links to industry are excellent and that local businesses become more involved in aspects of the students development.
The aim of the day is to illustrate to staff the varied careers that exist within a business and how they link back to subjects taught in schools.
Mr Alun Harding, new Headteacher at Ysgol Rhiwabon said, ‘’This is a significant step for the school and we hope that it will be inspiring for our staff when they return to the classroom to lead our students with drive and enthusiasm for what local business can offer.
There are many careers available to students and with a wider understanding of what is on offer, staff will be able to use that to raise the aspirations of our students’’.
Giles Evans, the Business and Community Manager at the school said, ‘’Our links to Business in the Community have been invaluable to the school in helping to raise the profile of what local business can offer our students. The involvement of many local companies has developed a wider appreciation of the role that business can play in education’’.
