Jessica – worked in local primary school BEFORE DURING AFTER Went downhill as I was kind of disappointed of how the job was going to be. Just photocopying and laminating, but maybe it was because it was the beginning of the year. I did ask to get transferred to nursery, it was slightly better as I had contact with children and helped them to adjust. It was great before as we had lots of choices, we had a particular afternoon when someone came in to talk to us about how it works. We even had a website to go to full of work experience jobs. After the 5 days I felt as if I didn’t get the experience I wanted to be a teacher. I got lumbered with the boring jobs, and didn’t have much contact with the kids. We did have diaries to fill in abd health assesment checks, but I did do them and after had a feedback day but wasn’t there.

Kadeisha – Edith Neville Primary BEFORE: Organisation problems, originally opted for Hotel/Retail, only choice Nursery. Asked in PSHE lesson what I would prefer to do DURING: Good atmosphere/environment. (staff) treated on equal level. Enjoyed helping children, getting involved AFTER: Left with a good reputation. Follow up wasn’t good. Filled in bits of diary but it wasn’t checked. Teachers bought me a goodbye prezzie after.
Paris – REAL Hairdressing. (Cale St, Chelsea) BEFORE: We weren’t given enough time to get our own work experience, and the teachers said that they would help me find a solicitors to work in, as I wanted to be a lawyer. Noone contacted me about it, and when I asked if they’d found a solicitors they acted like I never asked. Without sufficient time for me to find another job, they found me another job in a hairdressers, which I really didn’t want to do. DURING: I was put in a hairdressers that didn’t even want me. They made me sweep up and make tea for the customers, and gave me dirty looks all day. They expected me to buy a uniform for 2 weeks experience. They made me feel really undervalued AFTER: They didn’t even ask me for my signed diary. They didn’t ask me how it went either, it was just back to school work and I was left with a bad experience.
Adam - Halfords BEFORE: Wasn’t really bothered. DURING: Good at some times, but did have to do some bad tasks. Got on with the people that worked there. AFTER: Didn’t learn that much. I learnt how it was in a real job and customer skills Before During After
Bukky – ‘working in the drama department in my school’ I was doing well at school, happy and looking forward to the 2 weeks of work experience. I was hoping at the end of it to be able to have a better idea of what I would like to do in the future. After my choice for work experience was messed up and I was stuck in the school drama department I was very disappointed and then after just being treated like a slave I became very demotivated. I was also upset about the fact that it didn’t help me with what I wanted to do in the future. The only excitement came when I could see the end of the 2 weeks coming nearer. After work experience I was still angry over the fact that my work experience wasn’t the one I wanted. Also hearing everyone elses work experience, so better but also some so good. After a while I got over it and started looking for my own work experience.
Samia – Working in the database office at Artsline BEFORE: Everything was unorganised. A lot of students were worried and unhappy. Placements were last minute. Many people did not get to work in their chosen areas. DURING: I inputted data most of the time. I answered calls. Spoke to the people in the office. Woman in charge of me asked me what I liked, photography, and got me to take shots for their website. Got to do some photography. Learned how to use the franking machine. It wasn’t a place I would have chosen but it was a good experience. AFTER: I went on holiday early so I didn’t complete my journal/diary book for work experience
