The Local Community
Wherever possible, we use local businesses to provide services such as catering, cleaning, supplies, etc.
Harold Stock and Co. Solicitors support local schools and universities by offering several work placements a year to students looking to gain work experience.
Road Safety Week
In November 2013, a part of the Road Safety Week, we supplied high visibility vests to local school, St George’s Primary School to be used on school outings. We also supplied vests to the local Scout group in Stockport.
Futures Event – Mossley Hollins High School
In 2014, we sent former pupils, Kirsty Dunn, Legal Executive and Alex Newman, Practice Manager, back to school to take part in the Futures Event at Mossley Hollins High School. Stuart Marshall, Deputy Head teacher said: “Futures event is a fantastic opportunity for the young people at Mossley Hollins to really start to think about their futures as they approach the final year at school and begin to apply for work, college or training. The mock interview gives them a real life experience of sitting face to face with an adult other than their teacher and is a really effective way to practise and hone their interview techniques. The feedback they receive following the interviews is used in lessons to evaluate their performance and make action plans to improve further.
We are greatly indebted to all our friends from the local business community for their involvement in the event. Their knowledge and skills are invaluable in providing a worthwhile experience for our learners. Thank you so much to all involved and we look forward to working with you in the future.”
Kirsty and Alex reprised their roles as interviewers in 2015 for another successful round of mock interviews.
