Back in Business


On 9th March, 35 pupils had the opportunity to visit Simmons & Simmons London office to take part in their first Out of the Box session. It was fantastic for our pupils to be able to visit their London office and the opportunity to load up on burgers and chips (salad and couscous were on offer too).

One step closer to becoming selected as part of the Young Talent Programme, pupils were put into groups to negotiate on behalf of their companies. Pupils had an in-depth lesson, learning about how to negotiate and the different skills needed to carry out a successful negotiation. Our pupils did an amazing job negotiating on behalf of their companies, with trainees saying that the groups showed great promise.

The competition this year was fierce and it was so difficult to whittle the 35 down to 12, with great feedback for all candidates.

We wish the 12 pupils taking part in their Young Talent Programme work experience the best of luck and can’t wait to hear all about it when they come back.
