Today the secondary school students at Leaways are taking part in a World of Work Day – WOW!
They will be attending a variety of different work placements including a busy Peruvian restaurant, the BT Tower, Shoreditch Fire Station and with Virgin Trains.
Work experience provides our young people with the opportunity to learn more about their own abilities, including their strengths and possible gaps in their knowledge. It also lets them have a closer look into the world of work and help decide what potential sector they may like to work in when they leave school. Other skills developed include self-confidence, interpersonal and presentation skills, which are all essential to employment.
Kedleston prides itself on giving young people a wealth of skills and experiences in order to best equip themselves for adulthood and a life that is meaningful to them.
Good Luck to all of the students involved today!
