The Burgess Hill Academy in association with Burgess Hill Business Parks Association were proud to present their Work Experience Student of the Year Award during their Post 16 Information Evening on 22nd September.
147 Year 10 students were placed in companies within Sussex and the surrounding area, some even travelled up to London. The winner gave an excellent presentation to the parents and honoured guests attending the Post 16 Information Evening on their work experience placement and the value it gave to their school life.
The winner was Jack Woodford, who spent his week at BHBPA Member Heights Health and Fitness where he made the most of the opportunity afforded to him and gained valuable experience.
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
Peter Liddell does a first class job in ensuring that members’ interests are aired and addressed.
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
