PPM Ltd Offer Work Experience to Local School Pupils

PPM Ltd offered pupils from local schools the chance to experience different parts of the business for a week.

 Four school pupils, aged 15, spent a week with PPM Ltd. The pupils from Ullswater Community College, St Josephs Catholic High School and Keswick School were mentored in both admin and trade roles within the branch local to them. They were able to get an idea of what the different roles incorporated and what the working environment was like.

One pupil said " I would like to thank you for having me for work experience, I really enjoyed spending the week with you, I have learnt lots of skills and it has really helped me to think about the job I want in the future".

As a thank you for their commitment throughout the week PPM Ltd bought each pupil a £20.00 gift card.

PPM Ltd is proud to support local schools and young people in understanding the work options available to them within Cumbria and North Yorkshire.
