A last minute rush to find a venue ended in relief for organisers and students when Langley Grammar School pupils were able to attend their long planned business revision day.

The event had been supposed to take place at five business locations. But with a couple of days to go they all pulled out because of concerns about the Corona virus.

The Heathrow/Windsor Marriott in Ditton Road, Langley saved the day at the last minute - providing a venue.

The event was skilfully readjusted and the team from the Learning to Work charity was able to provide a career guidance day with a difference.

The technology company Verifone led students in an Agile Mindset workshop, supporting them in the build up to their GCSE’s.

To set the tone of the day Learning to Work introduced the session with a short Tai Chi session which was embraced by both business volunteers and students. Students were given the rare opportunity to interview Claire Giacobbe from Osborne Property Services, a key local Slough employer and hear first-hand from Sarah Irving of Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce and Moji Shahnooshi from Veriphone.

Nancy Lalor, operations director at Learning to Work, the charity that forces links between students and businesses, said: "Hearing from business volunteers, exploring learning styles and being introduced to coping mechanisms and agile mindset thinking helps young people focus on themselves and their wellbeing.."
