Year 10 students recently visited Moorhouses Brewery in Burnley, with a little help from Cassons. Cassons, who provide accountancy services for Moorhouses, have been working in partnership with Rhyddings to boost student employability as part of an initiative called Business Class.

As well as taking a tour of the Burnley brewery and learning about the fermenting and production processes, the pupils attended workshops hosted by Cassons staff which looked at how accountants and business advisers help businesses plan their day to day operations.

From working out the impact of changes in the price of ingredients to looking at the different roles accountants play in the workplace, the event helped the students develop a clearer understanding of how the maths they study at school works in the real world.
