Co-operative Work Experience
On 21st August 19 of our year 10 students made their way to 1 Angel Square, Manchester, the headquarters of the Co-operative Group to embark on a week’s work experience. The students travelled to Manchester as a group to find out what the world of work is really like, including the early starts and long days. Students were placed into a variety of different business areas including finance, legal services and customer care and got to grips with a variety of tasks assigned to them by their mentors.
All of the students took a great deal from the work experience, developing their confidence, independence and work related skills. The students who participated in the scheme went through a challenging application process which included a 20 minute formal interview with a member of staff from 1 Angel Square. The students performed very well under interview and the staff from the co-op commended them on their excellent performance.
This opportunity will be available for year 10 students next year, applications will open in January.
