Awards & Recognitions

For us, the greatest reward is having customers come back time and time again. But it’s always a pleasure when M&S is acknowledged by industry and further afield. Best of all, it means true recognition of the effort our people make day in, day out. Our thanks and congratulations to all of them.

Parents & Teachers

Parents & Teachers

We all want the young people we know to get on in life. So we all know how important it is to make the right choice of career. But that's often easier said than done - these days, there is a multitude of options out there.

What's right for one child might be totally wrong for another of the same age. So it's vital that young people are treated as individuals. What level of education have they reached? What's their capacity for future learning? What are they good at? What are they interested in? Where do they see themselves going?

And when these questions arise, you, and they need information - lots of information - to pinpoint the best career option.

M&S might be that option, it might not. But we thought it would be useful to give you an overview of what we can offer young people.
