Pupils from TKAT’s King Harold Business and Enterprise Academy enjoy an inspirational breakfast with local employers.

Posted on 16th May 2019

A full English was on the menu this week, for pupils and guests at King Harold Business and Enterprise Academy, Waltham Abbey.

Local employers were invited to tour the school and offer advice and career guidance to the pupils, in a bid to inspire and motivate them as they plan the next stage in their lives.

Head of school Ian Tilbury said: "It was great to see so many employers inspiring our students about the world of work. Employer engagement is an absolute asset to schools. Our students thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast and learnt a huge amount from their experience."

The Broomstick Hall Road school, which opened in 1952, is a business and enterprise academy.

Head of Careers Jaci Hammond said: “We have had fantastic support from our local business community and our students enjoyed taking part in this exciting networking event.”

The school would like to thank Arriva, Barclays Bank, Careers Enterprise Company, Department for Work & Pensions, Hill, People for Places Leisure and YES Partnership for their involvement with the event.
