What is Work Experience?
Work experience provides a ‘hands-on’ invaluable opportunity for young people to gain insight and understanding into the world of work. Giving young people the chance to gain knowledge, experience and skills from a professional working environment will encourage, inspire and develop the confidence and attitude of a young individual.
Work experience can involve a young person carrying out a particular task, a range of duties or shadowing an employee. The aim of work experience is to enhance the perceptions of young people and emphasis how important learning is to succeed in the workplace.
