Jordan and Charlotte’s stories - May 2018

Jordan and Charlotte started on a work experience programme at Dunlop Systems and Components whilst students at Exhall Grange School.  Both students made excellent progress whilst on placement. So much so that they were both offered apprenticeships with the company once they had completed their Year 13 education.

“Dunlop Systems & Components Ltd (DSC) have a close link with Exhall Grange Specialist School due to their close proximity to the factory.  Jordan and Charlotte initially joined DSC for a period of work experience in which they were able to show us their abilities and this led to DSC offering an apprenticeship to them. This has been very successful, and I cannot express enough how beneficial to the business Charlotte and Jordan have been. They have both grown into the role of fully fledged valuable employees”.
