Students from Barking and Dagenham College are benefitting from the guidance of business experts.

The budding entrepreneurs and industry leaders of the future have been paired with mentors who over the course of a year will give them hints and tips on how to conduct themselves in the world of business.

Learning more about time management, problem solving and interview techniques, students will be given the chance to widen their network of business contacts.

Companies involved in the mentoring scheme include Barclays Bank, Lloyds Bank, BP, investment company Standard Life and Moody’s, a credit ratings agency.

The project, which began last Tuesday, is the result of a partnership between the college’s Technical Skills Academy and charity Career Ready UK which links schools and colleges to businesses.

The college expects the selected students’s learning will be reinforced during the project.
