Woodlands Academy pupil, Connor, has been doing an extended work placement at First College Skegness for nearly a year now. He initially went on a week’s placement in Year 10, and showed great skill and was an exceptional student so the College asked if he would like to extend the placement.
Connor is now working in the main kitchen of the college where they prepare and provide meals on a daily basis for local schools. The placement has made Connor appreciate the working environment and he has shown excellent interpersonal skills along with learning new skills he can bring back into school. This has helped him complete his Level 1 Hospitality and Catering course.
