Exmouth Community College pupils will find out more about the world of work thanks to a new partnership.

The college has teamed up with Exmouth Chamber of Commerce to give pupils practical experience of the business world.

As part of this, post-16 students were invited to the chamber’s recent business breakfast at the Manor Hotel. Heather Hirst, Matteo Dosi, Hamish Stewart and Jamie Dawson attended, and were able to network with businesses leaders, bank officials and dignitaries, and hear an Exmouth Rotary Club presentation.

As a result of the event, Jamie was able to secure support for a ‘boat hammock’ project he has developed from local businesses Big Fire and WNW Digital, which will also be working with the college on a project which will see students appraising a products and producing sales material for the Big Fire website.

Post-16 student Kate Brown has also worked with WNW Digital on its recent launch party.
