intu Shopping Centres
Employees from intu Victoria Centre and intu Broadmarsh mentor students through a residential at Outward Bound in year 8. The Inspire prgramme then allows mentors to continue to suppor the students through a range of activities (eg challenge day, careers in retail, work experience) in years 9-11.
Everyone at intu welcomes the close links we have forged with Nottingham Academy over the past few years and especially our joint partnership with the Outward Bound Trust to deliver life-changing experiences to Nottingham Academy students. A good education and the confidence to make the most of opportunities in life are essential ingredients helping young people to get on and intu is proud to join with Nottingham Academy to create positive learning experiences which will enhance both career and life chances.”
The ‘Inspire’ programme has been designed to help students develop key skills for improving employability, while also helping during the years leading up to GCSEs through offering advice on potential career paths and opportunities for local students.
