Year 10 students at ISS undertake a week of work experience intended to prepare them for life in the world of work. Currently they are considering the opportunities available to them in Samui, and what experiences they might gain from them.
The purpose of students applying for, and taking on work experience is to help them:

Learn work and application processes at first hand

Discover the expectations that employers have of their workers
Assess how they might adapt to working life and relationships outside school
Gain the self-confidence needed in an adult world
Develop skills and knowledge for adult life
The work experience period is from 10th to 14th June 2019, in advance of which students will be expected to arrange their own placement and attend their chosen business daily, performing all relevant tasks set by their line manager during the normal working hours of the business.
