Transcript of Apollo Studio Academy Employer Day

Sharing Ideas

Studio School students will spend a significant portion of their weekly time in real work. This will allow them to develop the skills and experience they need to succeed in their local labour market.

When attending the Studio School, students will follow much of the same practice that operates within a successful business.
Uniform will be smart business dress and reward and conduct schemes will be modelled on those commonly found in the workplace.

Build your workforce of the future – ensure that your local labour market develops the skills your business needs – grow your own!!
You can shape the next generation who will be your employees of the future – grow your own!!
Have control over how students link with your business from day one
