As part of its commitment to the programme, SVRJV provides students with work experience, boss day; the one-day programme is divided into 3 seminars. In the first seminar pupils get the chance to interview their facilitators about their career, professional life, the company they work for, education and training. It focuses on what employers might/will expect from future employees.

And the creation and on-going running of "Breakfast Club" - a volunteered assisted reading programme at Star Primary School in Canning Town. The breakfast club's opening hours are from 07:45 to 09:00am and provide opportunities for pupils to get help with their homework, reading and develop social skills.

"We are delighted to receive the award and look forward to continuing to support the Construction Diploma programme." commented Ross Agnew, Project Manager.
