This year Thinking Buildings were delighted to have with us a pupil from a local school @AGS_Wirksworth to join us for work experience. Michael joined us for 4 days and was immersed into the world of Architecture but more importantly the world of work, with important jobs such as making tea!
But seriously, we think work experience is really important, not only does it give an insight into a potential career, but it also gives a better understanding of what is required when you do need to start a job and work. We can quite easily forget how different the workplace is to school the school environment.
Helping with work experience does take time if you are to do it properly. We think this is what companies should do and thankfully we had similar opportunities when leaving school.
