D2 Rail Attend Business Enterprise Day at Local School

Last week, our Project Controls Team attended a Business Enterprise Day at Parrs Wood High School, Manchester, on behalf of one of our current projects at the Transpire (West of Leeds).

This was arranged by the schools own “Future Choices’ department for all of its Year 11 students.

Neeraj Ajit Sukumaran was D2 Rail’s lead and he was one of the mentors supporting the students as they worked in teams to come up with business ideas, which, were then presented back to Neeraj and fellow guests from the wider business community including Aldi, AECOM and Purcell.

There was much success throughout the day and one of the student teams – Team Ignite – managed to raise ‘£321,000’ for their ‘business idea’. Here is a link to the students challenge: https://www.ourfutures.co.uk/documents/of_events/Enterprise_Challenge_Role_of_the_Volunteer.pdf

D2 Rail wholeheartedly support this type of community engagement and it forms part of the business’s wider social values:

  • Respect.
  • Fairness
  • Honesty
  • Giving Back
  • Responsibility
  • Family
  • Community

Neeraj enjoyed the day and is now planning on becoming a STEM Ambassador, offering his time and enthusiasm to help bring STEM subjects to life and demonstrate the value of them in life and careers. STEM Ambassadors are an important and exciting free of charge resource for teachers and others engaging with young people inside and out of the classroom.

Here is a link for the day.
