Work Experience

Who is it for?
This personalised opportunity allows any student wishing to explore and develop skills suitable for further work placement within a safe environment. This is an ever developing area.  In 2015 we plan to open a training kitchen where students will work and learn real transferable skills.
A typical session:
Tasks and activities are tailored to each student’s interests and requirements. They include organising and updating the swap shop within The Edinburgh Palette Building, maintaining musical equipment, creating and producing radio shows, organising notice boards, paper recycling, organising registers etc.

What will I learn?
Students learn to take on responsibility for tasks on a regular basis, build upon timekeeping, professional skills and interacting in socially acceptable ways. Links to external companies and agencies are fostered to ensure students can learn as much as possible about the role, to inspire and motivate in the long term.
