Students gain valuable experience with work placements
Over the past month Advetec’s Head Office in Midsomer Norton, UK has worked with Writhlington School welcoming 8 students in total over the period for work experience placements.
The work experience program, put together by Advetec’s Training & Education Director Paul Harding is designed to offer students valuable experience in the workplace and included time with the Laboratory, Accounts, Marketing, and Project Management teams.
We had some great feedback from the students too;
“I thoroughly enjoyed my time and wanted to give you, Matt, Jeanette, Craig and Richard a special thank you because I feel really inspired now and feel a lot more confident in what areas I would like to go into when I leave sixth form….I feel that it will help me with my future career plans as it helped me to understand what working life is like and I was able to show and improve my skills in the business and marketing area. I also found the management sides of the company very interesting…”
“I am writing to say thank you very much for organising my work experience at Advetec. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with the company and learnt a lot about how businesses work and specifically
what Advetec does. I really enjoyed, especially, working in the lab and testing the different samples of waste and seeing their results. I found it really interesting and exciting to see how the Advetec products work….”
Over the past few years Advetec has worked very closely with Writhlington School on the work experience programmes and has been able to offer some students full time employment as well as offering Apprenticeships in conjunction with Bath College with the next student due to start in September.
Advetec’s Paul Harding commented “Students gain valuable, hands-on experience that cannot be obtained otherwise, making them more employable. We look forward to working with Writhlington School & Bath College to help give experiences like these to train the next generation – and provide a meaningful contribution to the long-term well-being of our community.”
