Through this partnership we are delighted to offer Year 10 pupils the opportunity to participate in their ‘Young Talent Programme’ which is offered exclusively to pupils at Frederick Bremer School.

The Young Talent Programme provides an exciting opportunity for pupils to gain an insight into the working environment associated with a large multi-national business and has been carefully designed to help develop participant’s wider skills and provide ongoing support. Successful applicants to the Young Talent Programme will be invited to participate in a variety of sessions including:
