On Thursday 8 October our A Level and BTEC Business students travelled to Henry Box School in Witney for the first in a series of Business Development Workshops. These form the basis of a partnership between Cokethorpe and Henry Box School, which is designed to engage our students with local business leaders and forge links within our education community. This talk was delivered by Craig Marshall, Chief Managing Director of Siemens Magnet Technology in Eynsham, on the subject of ‘Strategic Planning and Decision Making’.
Cokethorpe students represented the school well, asking relevant questions regarding the difference between management and leadership and which would be more important in a strategic context. We look forward to attending the next workshop in January.
