Back in the spotlight once again after winning the Black Country Chamber Professional Services Firm of the Year award recently, MTT (UK) Ltd are now delighted to be shorlisted in the Worcestershire Ambassadors CSR Awards 2011. This award highlights the work companies do to support local communities, and MTT have been recognised for thier work in promoting the study of languages in local schools.
We have been working with a range of schools and universities across the region for a number of years now, and as a Business Language Champion have succeeded in promoting languages as a useful choice for a range of careers, not just for the world of translation and interpreting.
The programme has seen visits to classrooms, talks for groupd of up to 250 students at a time and work experience placements for many students who have then gone on to include languages as part of their future career. MTT also sponsors an ongoing inter-school competition bringing together teams of students to make presentations in a foreign language to a panel of multi-lingual business judges. This high pressure competition brings out the best in the young linguists and encourages them to develop their language skills to an even higher level.
We are looking forward to finding out who has won the coveted award on 24th November 2011 at the Awards Reception.
