Work Experience 2015

Posted on: 14/07/2015

For the last two weeks, all Year 10 Great Torrington pupils were given the opportunity of experiencing the big wide world to sample a variety of career paths.  Pupils attended their work experience placements, both locally and across the country including Wiltshire, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cornwall and Wales. 

Pupils on work experience are encouraged to fully participate in their chosen work placement to learn key life skills such as working with people of varying age ranges, developing independence and being organised and reliable.  Some also travelled independently using public transport. 

The Year 10's have done exceptionally well and excelled  themselves, making the school proud. Employers gave their time  to support pupils on placements, which has resulted in our pupils returning to school enthusiastic and with a better idea of what the future holds. 

Mrs Sandra Peters, Personalised Learning Manager would like to express her thanks to all that were involved in providing our pupils with invaluable access to such rewarding work experience placements.
