Centre Manager gives talks on world of retail at local academy as part of enterprise week

Manchester Fort Shopping Park’s Centre Manager has shared plenty of advice and life experiences with a local academy this July.

As part of Marlborough Road Academy’s enterprise week, Derek Askew was invited to speak to a variety of classes about his job and the journey taken to become a centre manager.

Judith Richens, Principal of Marlborough Road Academy said, “During July, we are having an enterprise week at Marlborough Road. This is to encourage the children to develop their aspiration and understanding of the world of work, as many do not have working family members as an example.”

Derek visited the academy in July, speaking to a range of classes. Speaking about the world of retail, Derek gave some insight into the training and qualifications required to become a centre manager.

Derek Askew, centre manager of Manchester Fort, said: “It was a privilege to share my experiences with these aspiring children. I would like to say thanks to Marlborough Road Academy for inviting me. They have a bright group of pupils who had some very insightful questions and comments. “
