The Future is Rising!

The Year 10 Yes Futures, Rising Futures participants were treated to a brilliant day visiting the offices of Reed Smith Law Firm.

The morning started with an introduction to law and the different types of law practise, followed by a speed networking session where the students got to speak to trainees, business support and lawyers. This was followed by a networking lunch which was a great opportunity for students to practice their networking skills.

In the afternoon students were given a commercial awareness activity where they had different newspaper articles which they had to analyse and research, before presenting back to the group. Bapite Wa Bapite, Beloved Olofinsao, Precious Olayinka and  Humayra Jannat Miah were in the winning group with some thorough research and clear presenting. Jordan Tavares and Idris Razzak both added great humour!

The final presentation of the day was from the HR manager who spoke to the students about a CV and interview techniques as well as ways into Reed Smith and the day finished with a visit to the 30th floor which provided amazing views over London. The Year 10s had a fantastic day and clearly gained a lot from this unique experience and really did us PROUD!
