Eleven talented students from our Sixth From have recently been selected for Dream Placement organised by the Centre for Leadership Performance (CfLP).

Dream Placement is a unique Cumbrian initiative, project managed by the Centre for Leadership Performance (CfLP), that brings together bright, motivated young students aged 16-18 with some of the most forward-looking and successful businesses in the county.

The students went through a selection process which included applications and interviews, and then were shortlisted for a place with various businesses in Cumbria.

Mr Hamilton, Director of Learning for Sixth Form said:

“We are delighted that so many of our students were successful in gaining a Dream Placement this year.”

“The students will gain some valuable experiences and I’m sure that it will help them in their future careers. I wish all our students the best for their placement and know that they will be a credit to our school and Sixth Form.”

“I am looking forward to gaining a fresh perspective that could steer me towards post-A-level opportunities. This experience promises to enhance my understanding of the engineering industry, and I’m particularly eager about the Birchwood labs visit as it aligns perfectly with my passion for chemistry.”

Leo Hamilton, is going to Allerdale Waste Services for the week, he said:

“I am looking forward to independently handling a project for my host company and showing them what I can do within project management.”
