Christeyns provides industry insights to students

Staff members of hygiene chemicals manufacturer Christeyns –  UK have helped local Aspire-igen students working on a laundry focused project. Aspire-igen is a Yorkshire based social enterprise that is focused on changing lives for the better through learning and work.

The assignment was to create a new fabric conditioner for the spa market and students were given the technical, marketing and forecasting aspects they needed to consider and include in their final presentations via online video conferencing. The City & Guilds Level 2 Diploma in Business Support is for students from 16-19 years old and is aimed at learners that are looking to start a career in a business support role, or students who want to improve their business knowledge and skills and progress to further learning.

Christeyns has been a supporter of the project for quite some time now and the company’s staff members and apprentices are actively involved in school career events and learning projects across the district. By doing so the company not only intends to stress the importance of the manufacturing industry’s employment opportunities, but also wants to provide knowledge and support to the young people in the communities, inspiring future career paths and upcoming talent.
