Thanks to Mrs Dhiman, a parent contact we were invited to take a group of girls who are studying or interested in studying STEM subject to the newly refurbished BT Headquarters, Lanyon Place. We were very lucky to be sponsored by BT for both the transport and our lunch!

The girls enjoyed a fun filled day of activities which started off with a tour of the building including the SOC (Secure Operating Centre) and a meet and greet with many of the staff. A very enjoyable careers session with two female interns who started off both as an apprentice (post A’Level) and a graduate recruit. They both discussed the pro’s and cons of their very different paths into BT and of their journey whilst in BT and discussed the opportunities in all the different departments. We then had a lovely ‘Pizza’  for lunch

The girls then began a Kanban Challenge where they looked at different principles of team management and building by improvising with their own ‘Pizza Delivery Service.’ They designed and improved their business models with ‘Pizza,Pizza’ emerging as the winners.

A fabulous day was had by all and we all were delighted with our goody bags and look forward to another visit.
