Friday 13th September was a fortuitous day for Strood Academy with new business mentors for the 2019/2020 academic year completing their training in readiness to begin working with students.

In an expansion of the scheme, led by teacher, Lee Cogger, enough new mentors have joined the scheme to add to existing returning mentors, for the scheme to now cover selected students from Post 16 as well as year 11.  New mentors come from a wide range of industries including local government, engineering, construction, housing, H.R and the world of digital.

Business mentors bring a wealth of industry expertise to help guide and inspire our students on their journey through to their future careers.

Thank you to all concerned.
