Induction Day

On Tuesday 8th July, Year 10 and Post 16 students came together as a group for the first time to take part in their Induction Day.  We were very privileged to be able to hold this at Asda IDC at Magna Park.  The aims of the day were for students and staff to begin to get to know each other and for students to get an insight into how they could be working at Sir Frank Whittle Studio School and on business placements.

4 activities took place throughout the day:

A communication & leadership exercise -‘Frostbite’ which required students to put up a tent blindfold, following instructions from their sighted leader.
Interior Design work for the studio school café area – throughout the day, some common themes developed although it is unlikely we will be having a swimming pool!
A fantastic Logistics exercise run by our partners at Unipart – great fun was had creating orders from stickle bricks in a chaotic fashion. The groups then looked at how to improve the manufacturing process, cutting out waste and increasing quality and customer orders.
Finally, we were treated to a tour of parts of the depot including the amazing Auto Store. Students watched the robots moving stock around ready for staff to pick at speed.  We couldn’t believe the size and scale of the depot.

This was a great day and students achieved a huge amount. We can’t wait to start working with them all in September.
