Bristol Trip for Y10 Work Experience

Our school was offered the opportunity for six of our Year 10 students to spend the week with a global management consultancy firm Lancia Consult, based in Bristol. We left school Monday am and took the train to Bristol. On arrival Lancia warmly invited us into their offices, the offices were fabulous, everyone was really friendly and the office dog Milo was also a delightful bonus!

Our week had been well planned by Lancia – The students had work day activities and workshops, such as: presentation skills, how to research effectively online, CV writing, understanding consultancy and the role of marketing in the company. They were also invited to be part of the global company six-month catch up meeting – which was numerous offices and at least four countries online together, this was then balanced by Lancia setting them a project “The great migration of Bristol Zoo”, bringing together all the skills they had developed throughout the week.

Each night Lancia organised social activities, hosted by different members of the team and this was great for the pupils to be able to ask staff questions about their education, life and career journey, plus also explore the city and have fun.

On the Friday the students presented to senior members of Lancia Consult on how they would overcome the challenges of “The Great Migration of Bristol Zoo”.

We have all met lovely people, had new experiences, learnt new skils and had an absolutely fantastic week. We were really sad to leave but also excited to be coming home full of stories.
