Personal Opportunities and Development Day
Year 10 as part of their new Personal Opportunities and Development Day visited AB Ports at Millbay Docks.
The group was shown around by Mike Reynolds the Port Manager who spoke to them about careers opportunities. The group were very interested in Security Guard roles and also Port Operatives.
Mike acknowledged the need for good GCSEs as a requirement to work in the Port. He also said the group needed skills like teamwork and communication were vital along with an interest in ships.
AB Ports manage a number of ports around the country the Plymouth site is used by Brittany Ferries who is the port's biggest customer. The group behaved so well that we have been given details to visit another AB Port in Teignmouth which will be happening in the near future.
