Year 10 Work Experience Week, 12th-16th June 2023
WELL DONE to all our Year 10 students out at Work Experience - you did yourselves proud!
Over 220 students were out getting their first taste of the working world, which is fabulous.
Thank you to all the parents and carers who supported with placements themselves and also a huge thank you to the numerous employers who supported with the programme - we are extremely grateful.
We hope it's been a memorable and very enjoyable week for our students, which we were thrilled they were able to do.
Here are a few photos of our students in action, along with some fantastic employer feedback:-
"***** is a fantastic girl ,you should be so proud of her. She is extremely mature and professional for her age. Her work ethic is fabulous, one of the best students I've had in. It's been a pleasure to work with her and if she ever wanted to come back or help out at wedding events with us I'd be more than happy to have her."
"I just wanted to write to you to let you know just how impressed I am with ***** who has joined us for work experience this week. Her attitude and approach to the experience has been really positive and it has been a pleasure to have her here with us, she is a credit to the school."
"We wanted to write to Lutterworth College to say what a pleasure it was having your 5 work experience students with us last week. The staff who worked with them were very impressed by their attitudes whilst on placement and spoke very highly of having them in their classrooms to support - saying what a superb help they were. We wanted to pass this on and say what a credit they were to Lutterworth College."
"This week, ***** was based in my class for her work experience. I wanted to let you know that she showed real professionalism and was very proactive in lessons. She formed really great relationships with the children and supported them with their learning across all subjects. It has been an absolute pleasure to have her with me."
"*****was a real pleasure to have here and it was lovely to see her gaining in confidence as the week went on."
"Last week I had the very great pleasure of your student **** on a work experience placement. I cannot sing her praises highly enough. From a standing start, with no Mac, Photoshop or Illustrator software experience, she proved herself exemplary in listening to guidance, following instruction and within two days, being confident enough to explore and create some cracking design work.
She was a delight to mentor and a great credit to the school. Although I am aware her heart lies in drama, I have no doubt that she could quite successfully pursue Creative as a potential career path.
I wish her all the very best on her future."
"It was a pleasure to chat with ***** today. During my chat she was really engaged, nodding along to everything I was saying, and asking questions as I spoke through my education, career path. We were discussing her career options, and I was particularly impressed with the research she has carried out into the different career options. She even had an idea of salary banding for the roles, so it was lovely to hear how organised she was in thinking about her future. "
"***** seemed to be genuinely enthusiastic about her work experience, and was engaged during the discussion, nodding and smiling throughout it all. She talked about the benefits of the topics that she is studying and was eager to share examples of her experience, e.g. video editing software, that related to areas of the discussion. It is clear that she is giving her career and options a lot of thought, as she talked about her strengths and interests and how they could relate to different jobs and gave specific job titles as examples of jobs that she would like to do. Overall, I was really impressed with her attitude towards her career options and the work experience and knowledge that she has already! I have attached the slides we talked through for your info. "
It was great to see those students who remained in school engaging in core lessons, completing virtual work experience and hearing from guest speakers including Harborough District Council. They also got stuck in with the Tyre Challenge Enterprise Day. A huge thank you to all staff who supported.
