Teenagers get a taste of the work­ing life

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

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.
