Microsoft Teams Placements

During lockdown, this contractor looked for alternative ways of delivering educational engagement across the board so they decided to trial using Microsoft Teams for this work experience placement.

The experience provided 7 Loughborough College students with a 40 hour work placement proving extremely popular after previously having the experience over Speakers for Schools in May.The placement gave students an insight into the highways industry and the contractors live projects.

The students were tasked with developing a presentation which they delivered to a panel at the end of the week. This task was to organise an Open Doors event for the M1 J23 project. At the beginning of the work experience the students completed an assessment of their employability skills which was also completed by the end of the week. The data shows that students went from an average of 4.8 to 8 in confidence and presentation skills. The data also showed that all of their skills increased and students especially appreciated the mock interviews and project task.
