Local schools take part in a publishing Open Day
The publishing Open Day was full of workshops for the students, including how to make a book, design an app, top tips for excellent CVs and mock interviews, as well as presentations and prizes.
The day was held for Year 10 students (14–15 year olds) from Chesterton Community College, Cottenham Village College, Manor Community College and the Parkside Federation.
The schools are part of 'Business Class', which the Press is also involved in through Business in the Community (BITC); Business Class aims to match the needs of local schools with the skills and expertise of local businesses.
Business in the Community asks members to work together to transform communities by tackling issues where business can make a real difference. Give & Gain Day is the UK's largest day of employee volunteering.
Heidi Mulvey, Head of Community Engagement at Cambridge University Press, said: "The day was about giving students from local schools the chance to learn more about the businesses on their doorstep and how they can help them. The response has been great and it's part of a much wider commitment to the schools that attended."
Mike Brophy, Regional Director BITC, said: "Thank you to Cambridge University Press for engaging so whole heartedly with the Give & Gain Day. The students we met seemed very engaged and appreciative of what you were doing for them. I am sure they will remember their day for some time to come."
Over 100 employees from businesses in and around Cambridge participated in BITC's Give & Gain Day on Friday, 18 May, matched by over 10,000 employees across the UK, and nearly 20,000 across the globe.
