We’re proud to have worked with Derbyshire Adult Community Education Services (DACES) on a successful 10-week work experience programme for Shirebrook learners, with the support of our indie retailers.
The programme saw five young learners from Shirebrook work with Qoozies, Nana B Baby Boutique, Shop Indie and Gorilla Garms, as well as the Centre Management team.
Each week, the learners began their day with an introductory session at the Centre Management Suite, before heading off to work in the participating independent outlets from 10am until 3pm. They then ended the day back at the Centre Management Suite where they reflected on their day’s work.
Taking part in the work experience programme has enabled the learners to bridge the gap between their education and the world of work, and helped them to find out more about potential career paths that are open to them.
We’d like to say a big ‘thanks’ to Qoozies, Nana B Baby Boutique, Shop Indie and Gorilla Garms for participating.
