Following on from the success of the inaugural business breakfast last year, Alperton Community School invited more local employers to have ‘breakfast’ at our Ealing Road school in order to network, discuss potential career opportunities for our students and to continue to build long term relationships with local employers.
The event was organised by our Head of Careers, Mr Rayleigh, and we had representatives from Brentford Football Club, Brent Libraries, St Georges Developers and The Education Development Trust.
The staff were greeted by a number of student career ambassadors with whom they talked about the school and their own career aspirations.
The guests were then given a tour of the school and discussed ways in which they could help ACS, such as coming in and giving career talks, attending the careers fair on Wednesday, 27th April, work experience opportunities and apprenticeship placements.
The breakfast was another success and the employers were all very keen to work with the school and our students in the future and we once again look forward to hosting more business breakfasts with other local companies, as this will continue to provide our students with opportunities to learn about what work is really like and what it takes to be successful in the workplace.
