Here at County Battery Services were always dying to give back to the local community, and this experience was no less. This was my first time dealing with Real Education and I can whole heartedly say that the people there were extremely pleasant to deal with. Both the staff and students gave me a warm welcome and were sure to ask a great assortment of questions. I hope the answers I gave Kenzie and Kenzo were helpful to them in finding out the path they want to take next and I wish them all the best in their endeavours. All the brilliant folks from real education are always welcome to arrange a lean tour with us and we hope to hear from them soon.
One of the principles of County Battery Services is to perform Corporate Social Responsibility, we love to work with Real Education they make doing CSR so easy. I believe the reward for doing kind deeds is doing them! Yet too the benefits are amazing it helps to develop our staff whilst helping young people the feel good factor is amazing. My advice is take an hour out of your day and give it to Real Education
I met with Martin Heartfield from Real Education with a view to seeing how we could support them in promoting careers in construction and the different routes into the industry. I was invited to deliver a careers talk on Monday 2nd March at their construction hub in Bolsover where I delivered a presentation to a group of students around careers in construction. We deliver these types of activities through our very own BIG Initiative (Building to Inspire a Generation) which is aimed at supporting the next generation into a career in construction. We have also offered a site visit for the students to a local housing project we are delivering in Bolsover.
We see this as the first step into developing a longer term relationship between Woodhead Group and Real Education.
Matt Coulton from Tiger Assemblies, a Creative Digital client, said: “The best decision I have made of recent years was engaging R.E.A.L. Creative Digital to help develop my marketing strategy. My business has boomed as a result of their new and dynamic approach to implementing new technologies in a coherent and beneficial way.”

During National Careers week learners from REAL Education had a tour of Nottingham College. They visited our London Road campus where Motor Vehicle courses are taught. They looked around the workshops and got to see lessons taking place, they had a talk form our staff about life at college and careers in the motor vehicle industry.
The learners also walked up to our Adams campus in the lace market where we teach creative courses. They were shown our student services and support areas, the learning resource centre, common areas such as the canteen and social spaces, as well as our commercial restaurant where our Hospitality and Catering students study.
They all asked really good questions and took away literature about the courses we offer at Nottingham College including information about our upcoming events, which they will have the opportunity to get involved with in the future.
