Increasing Work Opportunities for Students

This term we have been working on developing our Work Experience programme. Which is now being offered to all young people in Year 11 and above. We have some students working around site in the kitchen, on the farm, with the maintenance team and in the front office.

Our aim for next term for young people who are able, to head out into the local community and complete a work placement. We have already have some placements in place schools and hope this continues and we have as many young people as possible out gaining experience and life skills.

Here’s what students think:

“I’m glad I get to work with dogs as I can see the different jobs they have to do in kennels, it will give me the experience I need for when I leave school and get a job.”

“It’s good working with maintenance because I can use the tools and learn experience about working. I also get wages every week which is good. The maintenance team are friendly and help me to learn new skills. I really enjoy working with the maintenance team on site.”
