Work Experience

A major part of Transition year is the anticipated work experience. Every Wednesday instead of putting on our uniforms and going to school, we go to shops, businesses, primary schools or colleges, to sample the world of work. This year Tys have 3 placements, 10 weeks from September to December, 6 weeks after Christmas, and finally an 11 week placement at the end of the year. We also have the option of an one week placement. For my first placement , I am working in Clonfert Equestrian Centre. Something I really wanted to do after school is work with animals so my first choice for work experience was the local riding school. I love this work placement. I spend my day riding horses and getting them ready for the lessons. All my work is outside but I absolutely love this placement. My advice to anyone who is thinking of doing veterinary after school or working with animals definitely go to an equestrian centre
