The ThinkForward students after completing their work experience

During the Easter holiday, Year 11 pupils who are part of the ThinkForward scheme were given the opportunity to access work shadowing.

The 21 students participated in their work experience at the Blackstone Group, based in Mayfair. Blackstone is an international investment and advisory firm with strong ties to ThinkForward.

Zane Dabinett described what he thought was most valuable about the work shadowing: “The experience helped me to come out of my comfort zone and adjust to the environment.”

The pupils were based in various departments and spent time shadowing employees with their daily work. Activities ranged from video conferencing to New York and Hong Kong, real estate, banking, human resources, printing, marketing and researching private equity.
