Name and school withheld.

I like the concept and wanted to use elements out of it to support FE tutors with their planning and implementation of their Study programme work placement prep, but I think it needs updating, I dont like to use resources with dates as far back as 1995.

Where this pack scores, I feel, is in the teachers' notes accompanying each worksheet.

The whole topic of Work Experience can be a daunting time for the newcomer and consequently any quality guidance is most useful. And this pack does provide quality guidance.
