Many of the Y10 students completed their work experience placements this week across a range of local and national companies.
The feedback from employers has been fantastic, including some examples below, which Mr Brown gained from his work experience visits to some of the students on placement:
Electrical Services LTD where Caison Davey was on placement: “The work that we have done in CAD and 5S’s in engineering has really helped with the tasks that I’ve has been doing this week” Caison commented. Some feedback on Caison from his employer was “Caison has been using AutoCAD to make site drawings and helping to organise all the Health and Safety documentation including listing what document covers what and where it can be found”. An offer of work through the summer has been made to him”.
Lambert Engineering, Tadcaster where Alex Tiffin was on placement: His employers commented “we were really surprised how work ready he was in contrast to the students that we get from Tadcaster Grammar School ( Annabel Watson HR at Lambert Engineering). Annabel also added “We will look forward to seeing more of your students in future”
