Work Experience Co-ordinator
Afet is a work experience co-ordinator with 20 years’ experience in the local authority, working with local schools, London and locally based companies and also with partners in surrounding boroughs delivering a similar service to their local schools.
Whilst supporting all levels of the services offered by the team, she works mainly with Post 16 students, seeking work experience placements and tactfully managing expectations of students, parents, employers and schools.
She assisted in the piloting of a prestigious programme run by the local NHS trust for future medical students and has continued to liaise with the trust to offer a meaningful programme for suitable students whilst also building strong relationships with other trusts/organisations to increase the number of work experience placements offered to the borough’s young people.
She has extensive experience in engaging with companies to host multiple students at the same time whilst managing the expectations of all stakeholders.
