TY Work experience

It is great to hear so many great reports of students who have made such a great impression on employers. It is highly beneficial for our students to get this experience.
Well done to class Harrington who have just completed their task interviews. Their examiner was very impressed with their communication skills and ability to apply themselves during their interview.
