On Nov. 25, a group of eight students and two teachers from Springwell Community College visited the Chesterfield-based Superior Wellness headquarters as part of the Made in Chesterfield project.
Made in Chesterfield is a celebration of the manufacturing, engineering, science and technology industries and careers in the town.
The campaign looks to inspire the next generation to the industry, with businesses, schools and training providers coming together to showcase the sector.
Made in Chesterfield is coordinated by Destination Chesterfield and Direct Education Business Partnership and delivered in association with the Chesterfield College Group and with support from Chesterfield Borough Council, North Derbyshire Careers Hub, MSE Hiller, United Cast Bar Ltd, and Natwest.
As part of the project, Superior Wellness offered the students a tour of the office and warehouse space, with a brief introduction from each department. A representative from each department, including those studying for an apprenticeship, explained their role and the projects they work on.
While visiting Superior Wellness, the students were offered the opportunity to look at one of the many hot tubs Superior Wellness distribute globally and ask any questions regarding the products and the business.
"The tour organized by Made in Chesterfield was a fantastic opportunity for our business," said Carol Claydon, head of HR at Superior Wellness. "Our team members thoroughly enjoyed explaining more about the business, their roles and their work experience to the students. It was brilliant to see how inspired the students were and I think it opened their eyes to the various career opportunities available within the local area.The campaign is a fantastic way to inspire the next generation and hopefully showcase the different sectors and opportunities available within the local town of Chesterfield.”
