Student Work Experience

Work Experience in Birmingham

At Cadbury College, we have been focusing on introducing work experience to students. At the Hub, during break and lunch, there’s been an opportunity for students to find out more about how work experience can benefit them. There were opportunities to look at current work experience vacancies and apply for them. As well as checking out the VR headset for a scuba diving and police officer simulation. Work experience for dentistry, healthcare, teaching and other opportunities are currently available.

Super Human!

Sparkling Coursework!

Hollie Gudge as part of her A2 product design coursework made a ‘spike-tecular’ necklace.

Limited by the materials and the facilities in the College Workshop, Hollie didn’t want to stop there, so Philip Webley (teacher) arranged for Hollie to have a one day hands-on workshop at a local Jewellers.

Proprietor, Kevin Bassam has 3 shops, Kidderminster, Bromsgrove and Stourbridge. He is a well-known and an established jeweller for repairs and commissions. He thoroughly enjoys having students to pass on his jewellery making skills. 

Hollie jumped at the chance and made a beautiful silver ring for her A2 product Design manufacturing coursework AQA PROD 4.
