Teenagers get a taste of the working life
HARD working pupils got a taste of life after school on work experience placements.
Year 10 students from the Deepings School went to work in a variety of placements for two weeks and many were offered Saturday or holiday jobs.
Organisations which helped out included Marks and Spencer, Thomas Cook, HMV, Vivacity, Peterborough United FC, Perkins Engines and more.
Linda Taylor, who manages the work experience programme, said “We would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks to the many companies and organisations that have kindly provided a placement to our students.
“We really appreciate the time and resources that are involved in providing work experience for students – particularly in the current economic climate and we appreciate and value their support.
“We are very proud of the way our students conducted themselves out in the workplace and this experience will enable them to further develop their work related skills and help in their future career planning.”
One student proved so good at the work he was nominated for an internal company award.
