Never an organisation to stand still, Doncaster Council is now going into the movie business. (Well, sort of!)
5th. October 2018
To keep itself even more busy than usual during Work Experience Month (!), Doncaster Council has embarked on the production of a Work Experience video. This will build on the many programmes the Council runs to promote work-based learning opportunities, like its Apprenticeship Insight Days.
Aimed at school leavers considering Work Experience within Local Government, the video will provide valuable information about the skills and knowledge they’ll gain from the activity, but it will also inspire more managers in the Council to offer work placements – and those that already do, to offer more. The video will feature interviews with individuals from a cross-section of areas, from electrical, engineering and finance, to Human Resources and care. They will explain why they chose Local Government as a career and what they’re getting from it, whilst managers will talk about their role and why they believe that the Council offering Work Experience is so important.
Additionally, Doncaster Council is also changing the process in which individuals apply for Work Experience; the focus will be strongly on providing a more structured process, with specific opportunities in Local Government for which individuals can apply. Increased support and resources have also been made available to people, including how to complete application forms and preparing for an interview: key skills for any young person when applying for employment.
Keep up the great work Doncaster! We all look forward to seeing your new video and, as soon as it’s ready, we’ll share it on our website and with our other accredited organisations.
