The start of the second week and yesterday was slightly different, as we visited OUTWOOD ACADEMY BYDALES which is in Marske By The Sea.
This was because we were putting on a future generation session for a small group of students in year 10 and 11, it was to give them an insight of what a housing association is, how it operates, the number of different departments that help the company function on a day to day basis.This was all to help them understand more goes into a housing association then what they might have expected.
Our presentation involved; me, Jake another apprentice at North Star but in the customer service side, Laura Wood the lead for PR and digital communications and Beth a community investment officer.We started by explaining what North Star does etc. then talked about our individual journeys into the company and the different routes we each took and what our job roles now are. We made it interactive by asking the students to go in groups and discuss what departments make up the organisation and see what they already knew to help improve their knowledge.
