Year 10 Work Experience
We have always been committed to providing our pupils with an excellent careers education and are proud to provide pupils with different experiences in each year group, many of which are possible due the links we have with the Trust and its sponsor, the Co-op!
Our Year 10 pupils had the opportunity to experience a week in the world of work. Work experience is a fantastic way to gain real life experience within a particular role. Pupils worked in many different sectors with a range of different employers across Manchester, including employees at 1 Angel Square. One pupil even got to spend time shadowing the Director of the Trust, Frank Norris!
Pupils were commended for their integrity, respect, success and application of our values. Allowing pupils to experience life in employment has allowed them to gain first-hand knowledge of sectors, speak to employers and understand the various routes of further education.
We received some fantastic feedback from employers:
“Toni was brilliant during her placement! She fit in really well with the team and is clearly passionate about working with young people. Definitely should pursue a career working with children/helping others! 10/10.” Youth Work and Admin
