Work Experience Workshop
On Friday we held a Work Experience Workshop for Year 13 and 14 Pathway pupils.
Leading the workshop were Jill Baughen - Job Coach/Education, Training and Employment Advisor, (Jobmatch) and Sally Bateman - Education, Training and Employment Advisor (Jobmatch).
The workshop was a great success. 7 Pathway pupils introduced themselves to Jill and Sally and shared their likes, favourite lessons and interests. Then pupils learnt about a range of jobs and were tasked with trying to explain a range of job roles. For example, one pupil suggested the role of working in an office may involve filing and typing.
The purpose of the workshop was to get to know pupils and discuss where they would like to be placed for work experience. The next stage is for Jill and Sally to arrange to come back to Riverside School to share placements with pupils. Work experience will take place in Summer Term 1.
