Event description

Description

Working Knowledge Academies are set up to launch young people into great careers with employers that recognise and develop talent and ambition.

We have partnered with Nisbets (Head Office based in Avonmouth, Bristol) to run a bespoke Working Knowledge Academy programme, giving young people aged 18-23 the opportunity to get into roles they may not otherwise have access to, while also working towards an accredited qualification.

The programme begins with a 6-week training course designed and delivered by Working Knowledge and Nisbets. During this initial 'Boot Camp', the Trainees will be developing key areas of sales and customer service as well as essential workplace skills, in order to be excellent employees from day within the business.

As part of this training, Working Knowledge will be running a business and enterprise event for the Trainees to engage with local professionals, opening their eyes to the future career possibilities available to them and developing the skills they need to succeed in their roles.

Interactive and hands-on, our event will take the Trainees on a journey into the world of business. They will be grouped into small teams and tasked with developing a new business product.

The Business Volunteers will provide advice at business meetings and give feedback during presentations. Throughout the afternoon, the Trainees will also have the opportunity to ask volunteers about their own careers, gain confidence speaking in front of professionals and their peers, and develop their soft skills.

We are particularly keen to engage with professionals who have backgrounds in: Catering and Hospitality.
