Thanks from South Bromsgrove High Sixth Form

On 18th July 2016 we received a letter from Nicholas Coats, Director of Sixth Form and Karren Ward, Year 12 Job Shadowing Co-Ordinator, thanking Barrie Beard Ltd for giving, Year 12 Student, Thomas Reston, the opportunity to Job Shadow.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking Thomas Reston for his recent job shadowing placement and for recognising the importance of this experience in their education.

Obtaining work experience in today’s job market is more important than ever.  The benefits of job shadowing are numerous; not only does it add to a student’s CV or personal statement, it gives them transferable, practical skills that will serve them well as they embark on university, apprenticeship and job applications.

It is evident that our students have had some very interesting and insightful placements and many of the comments from employers have been both positive and inspiring.

Without your help and support we would not be able to run our job shadowing scheme.
