Students in Bradford are being equipped with the key skills to thrive in the workplace through a pioneering programme with Yorkshire Building Society.

The Unwritten Rules programme run by the Baroness Warsi Foundation and Sarah Khan-Bashir MBE, founder of Shire Solicitors saw the Society take part in a two-day workshop with pupils aged 16-18-years-old from five schools in the Dixon Academies Trust.

Baroness Warsi, chair of trustees at the Baroness Warsi Foundation, said: “We’d like to thank all of the staff and volunteers at Yorkshire Building Society for supporting our two day employability programme, The Unwritten Rules. We know that creating positive connections between students and employers early on is important for building confidence and motivation in young people and it’s a joint effort. That’s why we’re connecting local schools with local businesses to equip young people aged 16-18-year-olds, with the key practical, emotional and social skills they need to enter the workplace.”
