Work Experience

Tuesday, June 26th 2018

Today was the second day for two pupils carrying out work experience on the reserve. 

Part of becoming workplace-ready is experiencing and building new skills that could not otherwise be taught in the classroom, and can give prospective employees the edge when applying for part time jobs at university or when starting a career. 

The importance of soft skills, such as team working, communication and commercial awareness become all too apparent in a workplace setting. Tasks such as boardwalk repairs offer up perfect opportunities for pupils to test these soft skills whilst also giving them the chance to learn and hone practical skills that may come in useful in later life.

Aside from learning new skills and improving employability, work experience offers students the chance to sample career options and explore different job types without having to commit to anything.

Who knows, we may well be welcoming future Reserve Managers to Foxglove over the next couple of weeks.
