Leeds West Academy


Careers workshop with KPMG

Looking at future prospects with professionals 

Year 9 students at Leeds West Academy were involved in a "work ready" session with international business, KPMG, on Tuesday 26th 2018.

The purpose of this event was to prepare students for the world of work and participate in several activities that would support and educate them about things they could expect in the near future.

They were given tasks including sharing their expectations of well-known brands and what may happen with them in the future. They were also given CVS to look at and asked to work as teams to indicate where improvements could be made.

Students were then asked to work within their team to act as a business and complete Q and A tasks in regards to data and information that had been produced.

Miss Hall said: “This was a very informative event that will provide students with much needed knowledge and understanding to support them with future careers. The students responded really well and we have positive feedback from the presenters with one of them quoting "they have been brilliant this morning".”
