Insight into industry

Derby Business students engaged in a superb insight into industry as they were visited at The Derby by a team of staff from Marshall’s construction site in Ramsbottom. The staff explained their roles and responsibilities and their career pathways. Videos were shown to the students to illustrate the process but the students needed to see the site in action to understand the process better.

They were taken to the Ramsbottom in July, split into small groups and guided round the vast site, examining key production processes. The site visit enabled pupils to build on their classroom knowledge and get a clear understanding of the company and the myriad career opportunities it offers.

The partnership with Marshalls will be continued in the Autumn term.
