Make the most of your work experience
– it counts!
Make the most of your work
I believe work experience is as important
as your GCSEs as it prepares you for the
world of work – it’s so important not to
waste it!
Canon Lee School Student placed with
I feel as though I had a real insight into the
atmosphere of a workplace and a feel for
‘the world of work’. It has widened my ideas
for my future and given me a great
experience. An amazing two weeks which I
will never forget.
Manor CE Academy Student placed with
RAF Linton, Fire & Rescue Team
I have learned that I can adapt to a new
situation better than I realised and work well
with adults which has really improved my
confidence. Definitely helped a lot with
guiding my future choices.
All Saints RC School Student placed with
University of York
I gained confidence because of
having to talk to people I didn’t know.
I also grew more independent
because I had more responsibility. I
disliked being very tiring because I
was so busy though!
Huntington School Student placed
