“An absolute delight” and “… he has been an asset to the shop” were comments amongst the feedback that pupils received following their work experience last week.
Year 10 students took up positions with various employers from local small businesses to large international companies.
Work experience has given the pupils the opportunity to explore future career options and develop their employability skills; communication, team working, self-management, business and customer awareness.
The pupils have enjoyed and valued their experiences, “I feel I have gained confidence in talking to adults and people I don’t know” and “It has given me an idea of what I want to do in the future”, are some of the comments made by the Year 10 students.
A big thank you to all the organisations who have made this important and valuable experience possible for Oakhill Pupils.
