Ysgol Rhiwabon and the Wrexham site of The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), a global financial services technology company, have collaborated under the tried and tested Business Class programme to build lasting partnerships between local businesses and schools.
Ysgol Rhiwabon and DTCC Wrexham have agreed on areas for development and cooperation between the organisations to ensure both sides continue to play an essential role in the local economy.This initiative was developed by Business in the Community (BITC), which is working through Careers Wales to deliver improved collaboration across Wales.
Under the initial community support for Ysgol Rhiwabon, DTCC Wrexham, which was involved in BITC’s Responsible Business Week last year, has donated essential ICT equipment, enabling the refurbishment of one of the secondary school’s computer suites.
Melanie Ferron-Evans, Headteacher, said:-
“I am delighted to be working with DTCC Wrexham through the Business Class programme. The partnership between us will allow for our school to contribute towards providing the local economy with talented, skilled and well-rounded young people.”
Tracy Travers, Director, HR Business Partners at DTCC Wrexham, said:-
“North Wales is a great place to do business – with talented employees, a strong student population and a supportive community. In fact, we’ve grown 10-fold since we opened our local office over a decade ago. We’re committed to building local partnerships for continued success and we look forward to working together.”
