Morgan Sindall Work Experience


The Morgan Sindall work experience this year was held in school, this was because we couldn’t get site passes for the Bae site. An advert was put out to students to apply for taking part in the experience. Students applications were seen by Katie Simpson our Enterprise Co-ordinator and a senior Environmental Adviser from Morgan Sindall to choose who to interview to take part.

Informal teams interviews  took place on Tuesday 14th 10.15 onwards.
