WORK EXPERIENCE AT THE CHRONICLE
Student Ellie Hughes shares her first-hand experience

As a Year 10 student at The Glennie
School, I’ve spent the last week in ‘the real world’ doing work experience with The Chronicle.
I can honestly say this has been one of the highlights of my term, if not the year so far.
I’ve learned so much more in these five days than I could have imagined, jumping between the different areas and taking in as much as I could.
One of the things that surprised me most was the feeling of community that I saw here.
The open plan office, happy environment and the way everyone worked together was a change from the idea of impersonal offices that we have seen in the past.
I came in having no idea what to expect, besides the thought that I would be doing a lot of observing.
Instead I was thrown in the deep end, getting first-hand experience of writing in the industry and learning new styles we haven’t been taught in school.
My passion in life is writing, and my time here has given me personal insight into what it might be like to work in a career where I could do that, for which I am very grateful.
