Year 9 Virtual Work Experience

Year 9 Virtual Work Experience

Our sponsor, the Co-op, believes it is vital that students don’t miss out on work-based learning opportunities and that’s why they have developed a ‘Virtual Work Experience Programme’. The Programme will give Year 9 students the chance to gain an invaluable overview of the different sectors not only within the Co-op, but also with some of their suppliers. The programme will give lots of insight into the work the Co-op do, their culture and people along with providing students with some learning opportunities to enhance their key employability skills.

Throughout the programme there will be interactive workshops from:

  • Food stores
  • Legal
  • Funeralcare
  • Food Logistics and Supply Chain
  • Community & Shared Value
  • Technology and Data
  • Food Manufacturing and Buying
  • Finance
  • Property and Estates
  • Media and TV
  • Marketing
  • Job Application

The programme will be held the week commencing Monday 27 June and professionally hosted and facilitated by Springpod who will bring the programme to life, ensure students have an interactive experience and students joining the programme will have the opportunity to:
Listen – Gain insights from leaders of big brands and retailers
Engage – Ask questions and find out how to get ahead in their career
Gain – Skills and experience to add to their CV
Expand – Their network by interacting with industry professionals
