(Jan, aged 15)
When lockdown hit, we were cancelling face-to-face meetings, turning our rooms into home offices and adapting to new ways of working.
We had an entire year booked up of students who were due to participate in our work experience programme, it seemed a shame to cancel their industry experience opportunity.
So… we went virtual!

We viewed their work at the end of the week and all the students had achieved more than we’d hoped for. We are super proud of them for adapting to an unusual working environment and managing their time at home.
It was a great success! We look forward to welcoming our next group of virtual work experience students.
