Basingstoke Consortium

Over the years the Basingstoke Consortium has worked with The Vyne School on a variety of work related learning projects including: organising work experience for their students, employability skills workshops, career days, employer visits, enterprise challenges and business mentoring.

This year, we are working closely with the school and Unum, a local financial services business, to provide business mentors to help support some of their Year 9 students.

We are also organising two mock interview days for Year 9 students, and a skills day which will focus on the general employability skills needed in the workplace.

Year 10 and 11 students also take part in the Consortium’s financial capability package ‘Money Matters’. Money Matters is a practical programme that is delivered in three one hour sessions and aims to give students a better understanding of budgeting and ways to save.

Basingstoke Consortium is a charity that works with young people, helping to give them the motivation, self-confidence, attitudes and skills for adult life.

We provide practical opportunities for them to experience the world of work which are designed to inspire tomorrow's workforce. We have worked with business, education and the local community for 30 years, and have a strong track record in developing innovative programmes and sustainable partnerships.
