Year 9s go to Sainsbury’s distribution centre for a workplace trip

Tuesday 23 May 2017

Our Year 9s had a workplace visit with Teach First to the DHL Sainsbury's Dartford Distribution Centre.

Workplace visits are half-day workshops, and focus on equipping students with the knowledge, skills and confidence to access careers at top employers. This trip was designed and organised by one of Ark Globe Academy’s partners, Teach First, a charity which focuses on ending educational inequalities in England and Wales.

Our students met employees from DHL, learned about the job market and options after school and developed crucial transferrable skills through interactive, immersive sessions.

Teach First and DHL’s employees facilitated this event, and our students also were invited to a networking lunch at DHL. Our students enjoyed this very interesting and productive trip to a busy working environment.
