Dream Placement 2017 Development Day

More than seventy 16-18 year olds from across Cumbria prepared for their potentially life-changing Dream Placements with Cumbria's most exciting and forward-looking employers.

The teenagers won through to the final stages of Dream Placement 2017 to spend their half term break from February 20 seeing companies and organisations from the inside and learning about leadership from top management teams.

At a Development Day organised by CfLP which runs the programme, students joined forces with representatives from companies hosting the placements to take part in team-building exercises, learn about workplace behaviour, and discovered how to gain maximum benefit from the experience and get the best insight into leadership and future careers.

See how they enjoyed the day and hear from some of the companies involved in these short videos:
