At Tawhid boys school have been running work experience Programme for our Year 10 students since 2004. It is designed to make our students first experience of the world of work more meaningful and inspiring.
We have worked in partnership with local organisations, central government and private established independent firms. To name a few we have had children working at North London Muslim Housing association, Transport for London, Islam Channel, BBC, Investment Banking firms etc.
The important thing about work placements is that they provide an opportunity for young people to get to grips with working – meeting deadlines and working in a team. While a placement may enhance their knowledge and help with the students studies. it can also help students find out more about a job or industry.
Some feedback from our partners during last year’s work placement.
“how impressed we were with the two Y10 work experience students , Ahmed and Faizul who worked with us during June. June is always an incredibly busy time for us and the students were of great assistance. They worked quickly and efficiently, hardly took any breaks at all, were punctual, reliable and consistent. They were also polite and professional and Ahmed in particular acted as a real leader and helped and supported Faizul”
