Work experience works
Read about our latest work experience student , Georgia Walters, who spent a week in the office with our team. It gave her an insight into a real working environment and opened her eyes to the diverse world we work in.
My name is Georgia Walters I’m 15 years old, and I currently go to Frances Bardsley Academy school for girls, I’m doing work experience at Aston Group in Romford.
How did I find out about Aston Group?
My teacher, Miss Wood, helped me find a work placement at Aston Group. At first, when she told me about the place I was going to do my work experience at, I was a bit apprehensive, I was not sure how heating and the subjects I take at school come together! I am currently taking photography, geography and media studies (as well as the core subjects). I was a bit confused as to why she chose Aston’s for my work experience! I didn’t expect Aston’s to be what is it.
But now I can understand why! I came to the conclusion that they do much more than just heating. They are like a little community helping each other and also helping the outside community grow. That’s what I like about them. So far I have had a great time here, everyone is very welcoming, friendly and like to have a laugh every now and then and so do I. I was asked by my supervisor Rachel Statter if I wanted to do an article about myself also about my time at Aston’s, and of course I said yes ! I have always wanted be featured in an article but never had the chance to. Since I’m a media student myself I thought this would be a good idea and would help me in the future.
