Throughout their work experience, the student will complete activities across several different areas in the workplace and operate alongside experienced staff members where possible. This gives them a realistic insight into the world of work, an opportunity to be part of a team, to develop work-related skills, gain confidence, and learn from their experience.
By participating in the Tourism Careers Work Placement Programme, the Medieval Mile Museum agrees to:
Follow an industry approved, structured work experience template.
Assign a placement sponsor to mentor the student and ensure that the student has a clear point of contact.
Provide a formal induction into the business with a focus on the student’s role.
Identify the key skills the student will develop on their placement and provide a rounded experience which gives the student exposure to the different parts of the business that will help to develop these skills.
Support and guide the student through their Work Experience Diary and Workbook and with a focus on the skills they are developing.
Hold an exit meeting with the student to reflect on the skills learned and those that can be developed.
