MY4 work experience days, 26 & 27 November

On Monday 26 and Tuesday 27 November, MY4 students will spend two days shadowing a job that they feel would be of interest to them. Job shadowing is intended to give students a realistic picture to the relevant tasks and responsibilities for a job where appropriate. Hosts are encouraged to give tasks that are meaningful and engage students which can help them develop key employ-ability skills such as problem-solving, teamwork, communication and time management. A survey will be distributed at the end of the second day so that hosts can give feedback on the student and their experience.

Here is the link to the form for those who are willing to host students. This form will remain open until Friday 26 October. Ms Sarah Sommerschield or Ms Fredriksen will contact you by 01 November to confirm student placement and make any further arrangements as necessary.

Thank you for investing your time and expertise in the Skagerak community.
