Calibre Supports Building My Skills Program

23 May 18

Today Calibre supported Esh Group at a mock interview day which interviewed more than 700 Students at St James Park. The day was the culmination of a number of interventions organised by Esh Group as part of their Building My Skills programme (BMS).

Building My Skills is a year-long employability skills, information and guidance programme which provides students aged 14-19 with a rounded introduction to the world of work. BMS is the result of huge collaborative effort of 55 North East businesses, the North-East Chamber of Commerce and Esh Group, a regional construction group who coordinate the programme.

Now in its 7th academic year, BMS is delivered at no cost and has received local, regional and national recognition including winning the Business in the Community’s National Education Partnership Award (2015). All students receive 5 x 1-hour employability guidance sessions delivered as part of the timetable by a different business guest. Speakers provide an insight into their sector and career path, share transferable employability skills and support the completion of the student’s employability portfolio.

Students who attended all sessions, completed their employability portfolio and showed outstanding effort were invited to the regional Mock Interview Day held at St James’ Park. Tony Roxburgh, Commercial Director of Calibre commented “It was great to see so many enthusiastic students at the event and view the work they have already done in preparing for their future. We learned about the programme at an event run by the Northeast Chamber and were keen to do what we could this year. We have signed up for next years programme which starts in October and are looking forward to delivering the 1 x hour sessions”
