Brighton Aldridge Community Academy’s Enterprise Day

I was delighted to take part last Wednesday in BACA’s Enterprise Day.  Brighton Aldridge Community Academy is a coeducational academy school in Falmer, Brighton.

Over 50 members from leading local businesses and organisations came into the academy to support their students for Enterprise day.

After joining sessions to help the students prepare for the mock interviews, which focused on real job descriptions from the organisations taking part, we interviewed the students.

I thought that the students did really well. I can’t remember what I was like at their age but I am sure that most did better than I would have done.

Congratulations to them! They were a credit to their school!
