The best ways of seeing if an equestrian career is for you, is
to try it for yourself
Work experience allows you to do that. Severnvale believe that work experience is vital for young people, like you, and is an important part of your education. It bridges the gap between school and work, helps you to make decisions about your future and to develop new skills.
Severnvale’s work experience scheme is normally run in
association with local schools as part of their wider careers
While with us, you will be able to carry out a range of tasks and duties, more or less as you would as an employee; helping you to learn from the experience.
Care is taken to ensure that this is appropriate your needs, and takes into account
your choices, as well as what is desirable for you.
It gives you the opportunity for involvement in a workplace, helping you to understand how the world of work operates and how it differs to school. Experience of a real workplace is also the best way to discover what you really like doing and where you want to go in life.Remember, every work experience is different, but it is designed to give you the opportunity to make the most of your time with us; but it’s a learning experience and not a job.
If work experience with Severnvale interests you, contact the Careers Co-
ordinator in your school and discuss it with them.
