Wilmington Academy launches business mentoring scheme

Wilmington Academy held its first business mentoring breakfast on Wednesday 28th September. Delegates from a wide range of business sectors attended to learn more about the academy and its new business mentoring scheme.

As candidates for the International Baccalaureate Careers Programme, Miss Saunders also informed attendees of the exciting forthcoming educational plans at Wilmington Academy. Delegates were most interested to learn more, asked many probing questions and gave positive feedback on this development.

Mrs Roberts ran over detail of what the forthcoming business mentoring scheme would involve and the vast majority of attendees have now registered their interest in becoming business mentors. Mentor training at Wilmington Academy will begin early in October with the scheme going into full operation shortly afterwards.

The breakfast ended with year 13 students facilitating a tour of the academy for guests.
