On Thursday 5th October, the BTEC and A Level Business girls were delighted to be invited to visit the Canary Wharf Waitrose Store. This gave them the opportunity to find out ‘first hand’ how a ‘real life’ business is run – rather than just reading about it in textbooks.
The girls had a tour of the store and were able to recognise the vast scale of operations at Waitrose. In addition, they also had a very informative seminar with the HR manager who was able to discuss the recruitment, selection and training practices that they use within the whole John Lewis Partnership.
Before they left the girls were treated to a few surprises including mocktails, oysters and a Waitrose ‘goody bag’!
The girls would like to extend their thanks to everyone at Waitrose for making them so welcome.
