Here at the Activities Centre we provide work experience placements to young people between the ages of 14 – 19. Each placement offers the participant the opportunity to get involved in the world of work which allows them to complete a valuable and essential part of their education. The work experience placement with MYCT entails a young person carrying out a range of tasks and duties in much the same way as an employee or regular volunteer, with the emphasis on learning from the experience.
The work experience gives young people the chance to learn about skills and personal qualities, as well as roles and structures in the workplace. It helps them to develop their employability skills, relates their learning to work, and helps them on their journey into work in later life.
