Depot welcomed students from Priory School this week to take part in a work inspiration programme.

Five Year Ten pupils spent time in each of Depot’s departments, including the bar and restaurant, events, box office, HR, marketing and technical. They gained experience of working life behind the scenes at the cinema, as well as front of house welcoming customers.

Practical exercises included planning a birthday party and writing the questions for a job interview. In marketing, they wrote copy to promote the half term week film programme and made a promotional video.
