This week we chatted to Francesca, the new Progressions Lead at Craftworks College. Francesca is passionate about our students finding out their passions, progression through to adulthood, and discovering their purpose. You can see in the video just how important this is to her!
One of our pupils has taken on the challenge of working in primary schools with our Swale Youth team! This has meant she has had the chance to try something new and grow in communication, presentation, and teaching skills as well as pastoral care. LT has grown in confidence (her words), taken on running some of the games, and even had a go at explaining what the game was supposed to teach the group. She has really connected with one of the pupils who feels that she really understands him and his situation.
For his work experience at ‘Olde English Pest Control‘, H has helped with the fallow deer management in Crowhurst, East Sussex. He is having a fantastic time and learning so much about the field that he would like to work in, he never wants it to end! – The burger was a cheeky dinner bonus.
We would love to hear from any business that would like to support our Craftworks College Students with work experience or progression in life skills. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more
