New Work Experience Opportunities
Work experience will help our students decide if the role or industry is somewhere they could see themselves in the future. In our current lockdown, we do not wish our students to miss this opportunity so we will continue to advertise anything suitable that comes up.
Here are just some of the reasons for taking up work experience:
- developing transferable skills, such as:
- communication and team working
- understanding how organisations work or bringing a job they have read about to life
- building confidence in interacting with adults
- confirming interest in a career or (equally useful!) deciding it is not for them
- a foot in the door - if they impress the employer they may be asked back on a more formal arrangement such as an internship or encouraged to apply when vacancies arise.
- providing valuable content for a UCAS personal statement to give evidence of an interest in a particular subject/occupation
