We believe that every company needs to do its bit to help the local schools to prepare the children for a tough jobs market. With 20% youth unemployment they need all the help they can get.
Heap & Partners provide work experience for the local schools, attend careers days, provide factory tours, give talks on a range of topics including interview techniques and manufacturing.
We believe that we must educate the youth of today to consider all the advantages of a career in manufacturing. It worries us the number of times people say “I didn’t think we made anything in Britain anymore”. Britain is still the 8th biggest manufacturing country in the World, which puts something like 188 other countries behind us! People need to be made aware of this impressive fact! It’s not bad for a little island!
