At the end of July, following a busy academic year, Year 10 pupils from Ysgol Gyfun Emlyn found themselves experiencing a taste of the real world. Thanks to many local businesses, these pupils were able to participate in a week of work experience. Work experience provides pupils with a unique insight and opportunity to put the skills needed in the workplace into action. From meeting new people to solving problems on their own in a wide range of different situations, the placements will have tested the young people far more than any classroom or school based activity could ever do. It is an ideal chance for pupils to find out if their initial career ideas are all they had imagined. On behalf of Ysgol Gyfun Emlyn, Mr Dylan Williams (Head of Business & Work Related Education) would like to thank all employers who provided placements for the pupils, and for their time and effort during the week.
