YEAR12 WORK EXPERIENCE BRITISH PETROLEUM
Four students were given the opportunity over the Easter Holidays, to experience the world of work. Vanessa, Abu, Zakiyah and Zammar applied for the roles and attended interviews in School in order to prepare them for work at BP.
Vanessa explained how beneficial the experience was by saying, “Having attended the two weeks work experience, I have gained more knowledge of the working world. During the two weeks that I worked: one at BP, and the other at Hounslow Housing Repairs, I was able to apply my skills to the work that I performed. This experience has helped me gain deeper knowledge and understanding of how different businesses operate. It has also helped me improve on my existing skills while allowing development for other skills that are essential for workplace success. Overall, I think that this was a great experience which I was able to access because of the support and help that I received from my teachers.”
