Yr 12 Business pupils present market research findings to Castle View

Year 12 BTEC Business pupils visited local building development Castle View Retirement Village to present their market research findings to Project Manager and ex-boy Robin Hughes.  Pupils created and carried out some market research to investigate the menu preferences of the aged 55+ target audience who will be purchasing the retirement homes. After visiting Windsor town centre and carrying out the market research, pupils analysed the data and created a presentation of their findings. Working on a ‘real life’ project like this enables pupils to bring the theory of their course to life and helps them develop key employability skills. Robin was delighted with the research and the manner in which the pupils presented it to him in such a professional manner. Well done gentlemen. Ms Lane Head of Careers...

Year 10 pupils impress at O2 Digital Skills Workshop

Year 10 pupils impress at O2 Digital Skills Workshop

Last Friday a group of Year 10 pupils attended a Digital Skills workshop at the O2 HQ in Slough. On arrival the boys were put into mixed groups with pupils from other schools and set a task to create a digital device for the home. I was really impressed with the way in which the boys got stuck in, with many taking a lead role in their team, demonstrating some excellent creative skills as well as teamwork and problem solving. Oliver Woolley produced a great website for his team, and Callum Schofield stole the show with his impressive presentation skills receiving a huge round of applause when he finished. The winning team contained two Windsor boys, Ryley Jackson and David Saab who came up with a concept for an ‘intelligent food cupboard’, which really impressed the O2 judges. Well done gents, a great performance from all of you and well done for demonstrating how talented Windsor Boys are, and how well you can apply your business knowledge in the real world.

Year 11 pupils attend an apprenticeship event at the O2 headquarters

Year 11 pupils attend an apprenticeship event at the O2 headquarters

To mark the end of National Apprenticeship Week 2018, I took a group of Year 11 pupils to an apprenticeship event at the O2 headquarters. The boys were given a tour of their rather swanky building and were impressed by the offices, the gym, the pool table, the table tennis tables and the choice of food and drinks available – it was a bit of an eye opener for them! I’m pleased to say they were also really impressed by the event which gave them the opportunity to talk to current apprentices who are working at O2 in a variety of roles, from Digital Marketing and Sales, to Business Admin and Accountancy. Learning about apprenticeships from young people who have chosen this career path is extremely valuable as it provided pupils with the opportunity to ask questions about the roles, how to apply and the interview process. What was most pleasing about this trip was the feedback from the boys: “This trip has given me a feel for the future and given me an aim” “One thing that I took away was the skills and traits to use in interviews and also the use of body language. I am going to go home tonight and apply” “One thing I took away from today is a clearer insight into what I could do for an apprenticeship and I am very interested in applying for the digital marketing and business administration roles” “I learnt about the apprenticeships and what each level means and I also learnt what it is like to work in a business like O2” “Attending the trip today...
