Work Experience

EXPERIENCING THE ‘WORLD OF WORK’:

We offer a full work experience programme in order to develop an understanding of
the world of work. We have a large menu of placements in various sectors including
cleaning, catering, hospitality, admin, retail and construction. We also have opportunities
to learn work related skills within our social enterprise business, including two charity
shops (West Lea in the Green and West Lea in the Town), West Lea Coffee Cart and our
online eBay shop.

We aim for all our young people to experience and have access to:

• Opportunities to develop relevant work related skills
• Chances to improve their employability
• Advice and guidance on career direction
• Opportunities to become active citizens in the local community
• A chance to build confidence in the workplace and achieve a genuine sense of achievement
