                          Work Experience Placement July 2005


During year 10 at Sandfields Comprehensive School I attended a two-week work experience
placement that I arranged myself. My placement was at Tescos in Swansea city centre.
       My working day began at 9am and finished at 5pm. I travelled to my placement by bus. On
arriving to work I reported to Mr Thomas who was the bakery manager. During the placement I
completed many tasks these included:
 Stocking shelves
 Using the till
 Serving customers
 Baking bread
 Cleaning the floors
 Creating displays
 Announcing offers.
    The most enjoyable part of my placement was using the till and working with the other
employees because I improved my social skills. I feel I coped well with the stacking of shelves
because I had to patience to do the task properly. I did not cope well with the use of the till at
first because it was very complication but as the week went on I improved.
    During the placement I improved several key skills including my communication skills, my
ability to work with others, my ability to apply numbers and my information technology skills.
For example I can now use the computer system in Tescos and several managers commented on
my ability to get on with different staff members throughout the two weeks.
    In the future I would like to become a teacher. My work experience placement did not
influence my decision because it was not directly related to the career of teaching. However I
am pleased I had the opportunity to experience the workplace and would like to thank Tescos
for this opportunity. Tescos commented that I was very helpful, polite and a hardworker. They
have also provided me with a reference and said I was welcome to apply for part-time work in
the future.
    Overall I found my experience of the world of work very enjoyable and useful for future
part-time work.
