Business at PLUS

Paul and Nigel (Directors of PLUS) were invited to talk to 35 John Leggott College students at a (virtual) employer Q&A session. This was a fantastic Employability Hub event organised by Kimberly Gough.

The students asked a range of questions including:

  1. What subjects did you both study at school / college and did these make a difference to your career?
  2. Why did you both choose to work in Education?
  3. How did the idea for your business come up, can you explain what you had to do, to get started?
  4. What skills would you say are the most important to run your own business and be successful?
  5. What's the hardest thing about your work and the best thing?
  6. Can you give any advice about what things you need to know before starting a business?
  7. What hours do you have to work and what does your average day look like?

We really enjoyed participating in this event, hopefully providing some insight into how a business runs and the career pathways and experiences that support the development of a successful business

It was great to have the opportunity to spend time talking to enthusiastic young people about career prospects
