Over the past few months, Bywaters, Grundon and SRCL have provided 2-day work shadowing opportunities for two of our students, Stephen Anuge and Becky Jenkins. Based on the feedback, it has been an excellent learning experience for the students, and useful opportunity for the companies to introduce the students to the work environment. The scheme will be reviewed in the coming months. If you wish to host a student in future, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
