Dell: Powering Potential

We are delighted to announce that our brilliant Powering Potential employability mentoring programme is running again in the 2019-20 academic year, and your school is eligible to take part!

The Transformation Trust has partnered up with Dell to develop the Powering Potential programme, an employability workshop aimed at Year 12/13 students. The programme will be located at the Dell Head Offices in Brentford giving students the chance to see for themselves what it is like to work for one of the largest technology companies in the world.

The programme will focus on developing your students’ core employability skills such as building a CV, body language and interview practice to help with their next steps after education. Each session will be facilitated by a Transformation Trust facilitator, feature inspiring insights from Dell leaders, and provide opportunities for students to work with mentors across a range of professions and backgrounds from Dell.
