In Februrary, we were fortunate enough to be visited by students from Bredon School in Tewkesbury.
Bredon School is local to Gaudio, and offers support to ‘students with dyslexia, dyspraxia and other specific learning needs to achieve their potential’. Bredon prides itself in providing ‘an education that caters for all types of learners and treats and values them as individuals’*.
For five Business Studies students, this meant a trip out of the classroom, and over to us at Gaudio to meet our Managing Director, Adam Hutchinson, who himself is dyslexic. We had the opportunity to let the students explore our office and production space, and answer any questions they had, whether it be about creating an award or starting a business.
“I was really inspired to see what a successful business Adam has built up. I am Dyslexic and it is encouraging to see that Dyslexia should not be a barrier to success.” – Sam
The day began with an explanation of what we do here at Gaudio, to provide some insight into the dynamic process of creating something bespoke, from start to finish, and what it takes from a business owner to ensure all these aspects run smoothly.
Next, the students were given a tour through production, to get a closer look at what we can do with our in-house manufacture facilities.
Pictured above: Three students take a closer look inside a CNC milling machine. This machine is used alongside our engraving, printing and polishing facilities, as well as our laser cutter, to make a variety of bespoke awards.
At Gaudio, we have in-house manufacture and production, which is something we’re very proud of. We were excited to show the students what was being created right in their own town of Tewkesbury, not so far from home. We’re able to show what goes on beyond our administrative workings, and it was an honour to open our doors to an audience of young people with such a proactive interest in what it takes to run a business.
Before we can start making an award, it needs to be designed. Up in the Gaudio office, our designer AJ Bismilla explained his process, including working with the project management team to ensure the award is exactly what the client had in mind.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a trip to the Gaudio office without the chance to hold some iconic bespoke awards.
“Inspiring for Dyslexia students to find their greater strength is Dyslexia itself.” – Ziggy
From the first designs to the final polish, the students from Bredon School were engaged and inquisitive about every aspect, and a joy to have around the office. We have no doubt that with their interest in business studies beyond the textbook, these students have exciting things waiting for them when they move into the world of employment.
