Introduction

Work Experience Coursework By Reshma Bhudia 10.5FD Work is an important part of everyone's life. The type of work we get depends on how much effort we put into our school education. Everyone works extremely hard now so that they can have a happy and secure future. Students put a lot of effort into their school work throughout their lives, however, in Year Ten; it was time to finally see if we can manage life outside of school, with other people, different tasks, and without the help of teachers. The Work Experience from seventeenth of May to the twenty-eighth of May would help us to be more independent and responsible. During Christmas period, we had many talks on Work Experience which we all had to go on to find out what it is like in the real world. After having a pastoral lesson on Work Experience with Valerie, from Brent & Harrow Work Experience Consortium, we were given forms to fill in about what kind of work we would like to do for our Work Experience. It took a lot of time, but everyone had finally managed to fill in the form, including detail about where they would like to work, how far they would like to travel, and much more. ...read more.

There were many places I could have lunch around the hospital, such as McDonalds, Burger King, KFC, and Subway. I went to all of them for lunch as I wanted something different each day. The week was over and at that point I realised that I actually had a good time with the two people I was with most of the time, Dave and Ira. I did not want to leave that friendly environment, however, when the following Monday came, I was excited to start work at the nursery. I woke up at 7:00am, and wore suitable clothes just like at the hospital as I would be playing with little babies and feeding them. I left my house at 8:10am as my Aunt gave me a lift up to Preston Road so that I would miss a lot of the traffic. From there I caught the 79 and stayed on it until the last stop at Alperton Sainsbury's and walked for five minutes to the nursery. When I approached the nursery, the name of it, Bluebell Nursery, was written boldly and in big letters above the window. There were numbers and letters painted on the window with cute Winnie the Pooh pictures. Out in the front garden were the little babies playing in the sand pit and with other toys. ...read more.

Conclusion

I was so sad to leave the little children as I had such an amazing experience with them there. I was about to leave and as I said to them that it was my last day, they all gave me a hug and shouted, "Bye!" At that point, I really felt like saying that I wanted to come back there to work, however, I knew that at the moment I have to concentrate on my studies. Work Experience was a big part of Year Ten for everyone, and I can truly say that I learnt a great deal from it. By working at the hospital, almost everyone told me that I shouldn't do a science degree as it does not pay off the years of studying you do. They really opened up my eyes by saying that and now, I have seriously thought about doing baby care when I am older as my profession. Overall, I am glad that I chose the jobs that I did for my Work Experience, as I enjoyed it a lot. Both jobs were extremely different, and I am glad I got those jobs because I knew that I would have got bored of doing the same job for both weeks as many other people did. I think that Work Experience is a major part in a student's life as it helps them realise the responsibility that would be needed in the future, to have a good job meaning secure future. ...read more.
