Our Commercial Director Paul Brown recently went back to school for a day to help out at a Careers Fair focused around STEM (Science, Technology, Electronics and Maths) subjects at Rednock Secondary School in Gloucestershire.
We have some apprentices from the school and surprisingly our demonstrations proved to be the most popular of the day! We took along a Dennis Olympus 6x2 Rear Steer with Terberg automatic lift as well as one of our own service vans so that the students could get ‘hands on’ and try out the technology for themselves.
Tim Justice, Careers Advisor for the School said:
“The style of the presentation from RVS, using real trucks, was fun and really engaged students who prefer hands-on learning. We are hugely grateful to Paul and his team who gave their whole day to take part.”
“We are also thankful for RVS’ support over the past 3 years. When I visited their premises recently I was so pleased to see at least 3 familiar faces - ex-pupils who are now apprentices at the company. We need more businesses to look at taking on apprentices especially with the introduction of the new *Apprentice Levy.”
