Work Experience at Co-op HQ for our Year 10s
Over the Summer holidays some of our hard-working Year 10s spent a week at One Angel Square, the Co-op’s head office in Manchester.
They spent the week working alongside different teams in the Co-op, from Finance to Membership, learning from the people that work there everyday. The Co-op offer this work experience every year to students from our Academies Trust, and it’s a great chance for them to get professional experience in one of the country’s top businesses.
This year our Year 10s helped with a store launch, visited one of the Co-op local causes and spent time in the different departments that make up the business.
At the end of the week some of the students led presentations about what they had learnt from their time at Angel Square. Everyone was very impressed with how confidently they spoke and the mature way in which they presented.
We got some excellent feedback from colleagues at the co-op who were very impressed with how our students did. Some even tweeted about them!
