Supporting Schools and beyond
EVMT has recently supported Exeter School initiatives as part of the Company’s commitment to Association for Project Management (APM) values.The Managing Director, Mark Townley, supported Sixth Form University/Job practice interviews. Each interviewee was given the opportunity to confirm the suitability of their CVs and gain some interview guidance from experienced academic and industry leaders. The day was extremely well organised and the general feedback was very positive. Exeter School are planning further days which EVMT are keen to support.
More recently Mark and EVMT’s intern, Hannah Barnett, supported a Careers Advice evening at Exeter School. The difficulties in explaining the benefits of Project Management to the pupils were clearly evident and the Company needs to up its game to get young people engaged with the profession at an early stage.
Hannah who was recruited by Adopt An Intern (AAI) will be looking at how the message can be improved at the next evening.
