Year 10 gain a real-life insight into the world of work.
Some of our Year 10 students took part in a ‘Work Shadowing Day’ to give them an opportunity to gain a real-life insight into the world of work. Students who took part were able to attend the work place with a parent/guardian, relation or family friend for the day and get hands-on experience of the world of work away from the classroom.
Year 10 student, Jaheem Jackson, spent the day with the Brooke Weston restaurant staff helping them prepare for the busy breakfast and lunch breaks. He said, ‘I loved working and helping out in the restaurant. It gave me a lot of confidence and ideas about the future and what I might like to do.’
