At PTC, we encourage educational aspriations to our students to achieve their very best and From September 2015, Year 9 and 10 GCSE Business Enterprise stuidents attend a 5 week programme to explore employability and knowledge for business. Each week the groups looked at different business aspects such as Accounting, Marketing, Economics, Law which ran alongside work with the college's Careers Advisor to develop each individuals employability skills by introducing the job application skills, interview techniques etc. This finished with a mock interview for a business adminstrator. In additon to these sessions, the students explored the facilities of the college and found out about Further Education and the courses available to them when they leave PTC in Year 11. To end each five week programme, the groups attend a day at the University of Worcester to practice their business skills further in a series of workshops and explore the facilities of the University.
