Teachers at Ysgol Clywedog were keen to give their students a better understanding of what it means to join the world of work.
This aligns with Nest’s objectives to improve employment skills within education, raise awareness of STEM subjects, and dispel the myth that the only career available at British Gas, which manages the Nest scheme, is engineering.
Through its partnership with Ysgol Clywedog, Nest has delivered various employability skill sessions, prefect training, assembly talks, and an attendance and recognition reward programme. During the Covid-10 pandemic, community engagement manager Michelle Symonds delivered online sessions to Year 10 and 11 students to help them achieve their Agored Cymu Customer Service qualifications.
Michelle was on hand to accept the award from renowned presenter, Sara Edwards, at an online ceremony in November 2021.
