As you know from my profile, I do a lot of voluntary work in my spare time working with children and adults with special needs. It all gives me good knowledge and experience to pursue my dream of being a Special Needs teacher.
Life can be VERY good for a sports student at the University of Worcester, if you know how to take advantage of what the uni has to offer.
My opinion about work experience…
This blog post is written by a work experience student sharing his opinion and tips about work placements.
HI, my name is Kieran and I’m a year 12 student based in the marketing department on work experience. Here, I’m going to suggest to you why I believe that work experience is vital for anyone, whether it be in year 10, year 12 or at uni itself, as getting used to a working environment in an area in which you are interested in is vital for you future.
Work experience is essential for anyone in life, as it gives them a stepping stone into work, whether it be a paid placement when at university, or just an unpaid internship over a summer holiday at the end of your A levels. Any experience in a field that you are looking at going into is priceless, especially when looking for a job is concerned. Potential employers like to see that an applicant for a job at their business has had relevant experience, even if it is not a very long time, any experience is better than none at all.
Whilst at university, it can feel like there is no time to do anything other than studying, and definitely no time to have a job and earn any money! But there could be a scheme that could interest you where you can earn money when it’s convenient for you. You could sign up to be a Student Ambassador.
