In July, 12 Coloma girls from Years 11 and 12, were fortunate enough to complete a week’s work experience held by mykindafuture and Tata Consultancy Service, held at London’s Metropolitan University.
Throughout the week, they learned many skills including presentation skills, communication, time management and team working. As a team, they had to design and make an app with a website to tackle ‘mental health issues focusing on exam stress’ which the girls then had to pitch to a panel of judges.
Throughout the week, the participants gained technological knowledge, e.g. the 5 digital forces of technology and how businesses incorporate them. It was a fantastic week that has given a great taste of the world of work.
