Corporate Mentoring with Capgemini and Urban Synergy 2019
Fourteen CTK students were delighted to recently take part in a corporate mentoring programme with Capgemini and Urban Synergy. Over a number of weeks the programme helped to develop their wider skills as well as offering them an opportunity to gain experience which could lead onto a Degree Apprenticeship.
Capgemini is a global leader in consulting, technology services and digital transformation and is at the forefront of innovation to take advantage of opportunities in the evolving world of cloud, digital and platforms.
Urban Synergy is an award winning mentoring charity that has helped hundreds of young people between 11 and 18 years of age reach their full potential through outcome focused mentoring programmes and have supported many CTK students in the past. A highlight of the programme for students was meeting Christine Hodgson during the least session. Christine is the Chairwoman of Capgemini UK plc and the Careers & Enterprise Company.
