Crest Awards for work experience students
Friday 03 July 2015
As every year, the BMRC has taken on Year 10 work experience pupils from various schools across Sheffield.
Work experience allows the trainee to carry out particular tasks or duties, more or less as would an employee, but under direct supervision and with an emphasis on the learning aspects of the experience.
It can help trainees develop skills and attributes needed by modern businesses and influence their future career choices by providing them with first-hand work experience.
At the end of their one or two week work experience the students were given the chance to receive a silver Crest Award.
CREST is a UK award scheme that recognises success, and enables students to build their skills and demonstrate personal achievement in project work. It is student-led, which means that young people take ownership of their projects and choose to undertake them in areas they enjoy or see as relevant.
