A Week Of Work
During November, Year 10 pupils all took part in a week of work experience. Their placements were diverse; from dog grooming; to working with designers; to making a radio ad!
This is such a valuable experience and gives pupils a real insight into the world of work, sectors that may be of interest to them, and really helps develop their confidence and employability skills.
For some pupils it has confirmed careers that they would like to pursue:
"This has confirmed for me that I really enjoy video editing and production and want to pursue this as a career" - Morgan.
" I didn’t think about becoming a teacher until now. My confidence has grown and I really got on well with the children" - Elle.
"I loved every bit and found it extremely inspiring and it has confirmed what I want to do as a career, which isbe a plant operator or engineer. It was such a rewarding experience" - Georgie.

Many thanks to all the placement providers for giving our pupils a valuable week of work.
