Three hundred and forty Year 10 students from John Gray High School recently completed a full week of work experience.
The students spent time exploring a wide variety of careers. Some checked out practical areas including mechanics, construction, electrical, AC, diving, water sports, photography, and tourism. And worked at ARCP, NRA, and CUC.
Others opted to investigate opportunities with Customs, Immigration, the Fire Service, RCIPS, DOE, DEH, law, accounting, banking, clerical, the arts, TV broadcasting and worked with the airlines.
Students from the catering class experienced what life was like working in the kitchen at restaurants throughout the island.
The business community continues to support the programme with open arms and many students have already secured summer or part-time employment as a result of their experience.
Another three hundred and fifty, Year 11, students will take part programme from 16 June-2 July.
