Merrill Academy Students Join Barclays Life Skills Workshops
Staff from Barclays plc recently organised a range of workshops on key employability skills for students at Merrill Academy.
The company’s Life Skills programme has been devised to support young people into the world of work. Sessions included interview skills, CV writing and job search techniques.
Merrill Academy teacher Yasmine Lamoudi, who heads the careers advice team at the school, added: “We are extremely grateful to the volunteers from Barclays who took the time to work with our students in years ten and 11 on interview techniques.
“Their first hand experience and advice has been a real inspiration to our young people and the resources that Barclays provide under the Life Skills programme will be invaluable in our on-going careers sessions at the Academy.”
