Employers who have helped The Bedford Sixth Form A Level students to provide a taste of real life work experience were thanked at a special event organised earlier this month.
Organised by Laura Plava, one of a dedicated team of Work Experience Co-ordinators, the gathering celebrated over 200 placements undertaken by students since September 2018.
“Meeting employers and gaining insights into their working environment is vital experience for our students so they can make informed choices about how they want to progress after their A Levels.”
As additional experience, A Level student Jack Rodden, 17 of Olney assisted at the event. Jack is hoping to become a bio-chemist after completing his A Levels in Biology, Chemistry and Computing. He completed work experience at Headway, a charity which focuses on the rehabilitation of people after suffering brain injuries.
“It gave me an interesting insight into their work,”
The Bedford Sixth Form sends more students on to university including sought after Russell Group destinations, than any school sixth form in Bedfordshire.
Another student, Phoebe Gallant, was able to blog about her experience at Keystone Marketing in St Neots. Read it here:
