Sixth Form Work Experience

Work experience is a significant part of our Sixth Form’s curriculum as it gives us the opportunity to grasp a good knowledge and insight into what life after Sixth Form is going to be like, and it helps us to form an idea on what career we would like to be in. I worked with Walsall Council for a week in the Integrated Facilities Management department as the skills that they deal with are universal and can be incorporated with most careers, although some activities and tasks such as commissioning and contract monitoring did not completely correspond with my desired career, on the whole it developed my management, negotiation and communication skills, which will be extremely beneficial for most, if not every field of career. It was a real pleasure to work for Walsall Council as part of my work experience placement!
