The Burgess Hill Academy in association with Burgess Hill Business Parks were proud to present their Work Experience Student of the Year Award during their Post 16 Information Evening on 20th September.
Over 100 Year 10 students were placed in companies within Sussex and the surrounding area, some even travelled up to London. In order to qualify for the award, students needed to have an outstanding report from their employer. They were then asked to complete a presentation explaining how they had benefitted from work experience.
The winner, Ellie spent her week at Pets at Home in Burgess Hill where she made the most of the opportunity afforded to her and gained valuable experience. Steve Willis from Steve Willis Training presented the trophy and prizes to the top four students on behalf of the Burgess Hill Business Parks Association. We at The Burgess Hill Academy are extremely grateful for the time that local businesses are able to give to help our students understand the working world.
