Testimonials from a number of the Education providers we have worked with can be seen below:
Feedback is always positive
Key Stage Two pupils have had the opportunity to work with Rex Procter & Partners on a number of occasions, on tasks ranging from enterprise to aspirations. Our children love working with staff from Rex Procter & Partners and feedback is always positive. The activities have allowed our pupils to meet people other than school staff who might influence their future options and choices. They have had the opportunity to ask questions and see people working in their profession; also they were made aware of the world of work, expectations of the employer and what employees have had to do to reach their goals. We are grateful of the input from Paul Mackie and his team as this has led to further development work in school on the topic of enterprise.

A wealth of information and knowledge
This is the first opportunity we have had as a school to work alongside Rex Procter & Partners and the experience was excellent. We took a group of approximately thirty learners, who were all studying GCSE Business, to experience a Work Inspiration event hosted on the business premises of RP&P Bradford. The company provided a wealth of information and knowledge in a very relaxed and welcoming manner, which allowed our learners to experience another aspect of work related learning to broaden their life experiences. We look forward to working with Rex Procter & Partners again in the future should we be invited to do so.

Amazing support throughout

The programme has given the students the opportunity to see how a live office runs and an insight into the business world. Rex Procter & Partners provided amazing support throughout all the Work Inspiration days. The college would like to thank the staff for such an inspiring few days.
