As part of its commitment to the programme, Balreed hosted a group of GCSE students from the Cornwallis Academy at their Head Offie in Maidstone.

Students were given an overview of the career opportunities in managed print services and demonstrations of new production print and fiishing technologies. Balreed Group Marketing Director Gary Downey said: “This is a great initiative that we are very happy to support. It is the fist time we have opened our doors to local students and it’s been exciting to get their positive feedback on what they have seen at Balreed.”

Balreed plans to hold a number of PrintIT! fund-raising events to raise money for the development of new career materials and content for student work books.
