TY Work Experience

We would like to wish our Transition Year students the best of luck with their work experience which they undertook this week. Work experience is a very important aspect of our Transition Year programmes. Students get to try out careers that may interest them and get a taste of the working world before they enter it themselves. The students have chosen a wide range of areas to delve into and we look forward to reading their reports on their experiences.
