R.E.A.L. Work Placements

Could you inspire a young person through a work placement experience?  

One of our students, William, spent five weeks with the team at the Trent Barton bus depot at Sutton-in-Ashfield. He learnt all about maintaining buses, with a focus on passenger safety and roadworthiness. 

Martin Heartfield, Marketing and Business Engagement Manager at R.E.A.L. Education, said: “We were delighted to see this placement really inspired William and thank the staff at Trent Barton Buses for giving him a wonderful experience. He is even more enthusiastic about becoming a mechanic and is very keen to join the world of work.”
