Working Life Workshop - Year 6
Working Life Workshop at Allen & Overy
Our children and staff really enjoyed their experience of the Working Life workshop. One of our Year 6 children wrote the following account:
On Wednesday 13th March some pupils from Year 6 went to Allen & Overy (a law firm in the City of London) for a work-life experience.
There were many different types of jobs such as lawyers, PAs, legal secretaries and many other jobs. At the work-life experience there were lots of places for staff to eat and there was a gym, therapists and doctors. The gym was there because some workers may not get the time to do the exercise they need to stay healthy. Another thing they had was a terrace for BBQs and sleep-pods downstairs in-case you had to work late!
We interviewed some of the workers at the company they told us their work salary and the PA said it was £30,000 per year.
We saw a lot of buildings including the Gherkin, Walkie-Talkie and the Cheese-grater. As we were going back we saw the tallest tower in Central London which was Salesforce Tower.
I enjoyed the experience and I have learned that you don’t have to go to university to do some jobs, you can do an apprenticeship instead.
