Work Experience My placement was discussed by one of my teachers called Mr Dunn. He had a chat with my employer called Ms Susan Haimes. They had to sort out everything out before I started.

The reason why I was nervous was because I had never had an interview without any other person being present before. My work placement was The University of Liverpool.
