Our Ambition Programme students had the amazing experience of visiting the Amazon fulfilment centre LBA2 today, along with students from other Delta Academies on the programme. Students were given in depth information about how the Amazon warehouse operates, the skills and attributes needed to be a successful employee and the benefits of working for this company.
Students were able to have in depth conversations with a variety of employees and particularly enjoyed exploring their break facilities, smashing up the pool table and shooting some hoops! All students were also given a tour gift, with most choosing an Amazon water bottle to use at the new Hydration Stations in the Academy.
The second part of the day was a session led by South Yorkshire Police, hosted at Rossington All Saints Academy. Students were presented with invaluable knowledge regarding Child Criminal Exploitation, how Organised Crime Groups operate and the tactics they use to exploit young people. The session was extremely educational for students and staff, with all benefitting from this experience.
