During Work Experience Week, I worked with Mr Luscombe and Miss Yeoman at the Publicity, Web and Marketing Department.  On Monday, I got my official staff badge printed (occupation: Junior Media Monkey). I also got a health and safety briefing, before taking photos of Challenge Week activities and posting on social media, which I did throughout the week.  I later visited Ms Nelson-Tyrrell in reprographics, where I made some booklets and learned how to use the printers in her office.

On Tuesday, I carried out a planned redesign of the Student of the Month posters for all three of us. I also drew up questions for the following day’s interview with the Work Experience students in the IT department. By Wednesday, the questions had been asked to Jake and James, and I also redesigned the staff end-of-year certificates.

On Thursday, we went to Polmartin Riding Stables, where we took photographs of our Work Experience and Challenge Week students on horses, as well as taking photographs of the horses – I even stroked a horse called Bracken! In the afternoon, I wrote some social media posts about our students doing their Work Experience in a childcare environment.

On Friday, I finished by writing a letter to Head Teacher Mr Lingard about my Work Experience, and also typing up this article in the afternoon. I also took photos of the Dance Week students and the Variety Show. It was sad to learn that my time at Publicity, Web and Marketing was not forever… but it was good while it lasted. (On the plus side, we did get our 1,000th Twitter follower that day!)

Over the course of the week, I mastered various skills, including: Using Adobe InDesign, taking good DSLR photos and co-ordinating social media posts. Let’s just say that “My Work Experience was a good week” is the understatement of the decade.
