I’ve been a Worktree Volunteer since 2009. There is a direct correlation between my “day job” and the Worktree Initiatives, cascading the Employability agenda to pre-option students all the way up to Sixth Formers, preparing them for the next stages in their development (Which may, if they choose to study a course at Buckingham, see them working with my team again). It’s something I am deeply passionate about, and investing some of my time and experience in Worktree is an amazing and important opportunity!
