From the 27th June – 1st July 2016, Year 12 students were on work experience. The students contacted and organized their placement themselves, allowing them to gain independence and confidence when communicating with employers. This also enabled the students to gain a placement that was beneficial to them and their desired career choice.
Helga, Marusa and Amy completed their work experience at AXA PPP Health Insurance in Tunbridge Wells. They learnt more about the company in various departments before applying what they had learnt to a group project which was to create their own Health Insurance package aimed at University students. They presented this on the last day of their work experience week to staff at AXA and teachers from the schools that participated in the work placement.
