Trident Booklet - Work Experience.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

In this booklet you will find how to select your chosen Trident placement, what to do in the interview and how to make the appointment. Also you will find out about the preparation in pastoral lessons and general advice on how to prepare. The Selection Process: When it is time to select your Trident placement you have the choice to select six placements out of the Trident Book or opt for a private placement. I did neither as I knew someone that was willing to take me on. If you decide to select six placements you have to do is choose six jobs that you are willing to do because you may not get your first choice then complete form putting your favourite choice first and your least favourite last on your placement sheet. I would advise you to only write down six placements that you actually enjoy otherwise you may be very miserable for two weeks. If you choose to take a private placement then you have to find a company that you would like to go for Trident and ask them if they would be willing to take you on. If they decide to take you on you must find out if they have insurance to cover you otherwise you will not be able to undertake trident at that company. ...read more.

welcomed me and showed me round the office and introduced me to the staff. I must admit that I did not remember many of their names. They were all very friendly to me and asked me if I was nervous. I was then taken to a room where I had to watch a Health and Safety video. Sharon told me where the fire exits were and gave me a booklet on bomb scares and fire procedures. I was given a timetable on what I was going to do over the two weeks Trident period. I was told that I had to sign in and out of the building each day. I was also told the security code to enter the office. By now it was time for lunch; I was shown into a room with a television and ate my lunch. Sharon came in and asked if I would like to go into court that afternoon with a case worker. I was very happy to do that as I had never been into a court before. As I entered the courtroom I was shown into a row of seats behind the barrister for the prosecution. ...read more.

Conclusion

It was quite interesting trying to hide from Adora the next day! The next week when I was at the Criminal Justice Unit I was working with a girl called Jo who had taken me under her wing and was really friendly to me, she told me about another lady in the office called Denise who had a problem with bad breath. I didn't think too much of it when I was told to work with Denise. All of a sudden I felt very sick her breath was awful. If I said something funny she developed the worst laugh I have ever heard it was so squeaky but it made her breath worse. Also while she was laughing she had laughed so much that she had a bit of a fit really. I was so glad when I moved on to work with someone else. I was very sad when my work experience came to an end and I had to return to school. I couldn't believe that people actually got paid for doing such an interesting job. I definitely would like to work in Law once I leave school. Maybe join the Civil service and work my way up. It was nice to be treated as an adult. I didn't like returning to school. ...read more.
