A detailed and honest look at several work placements through the eyes of the young people involved. Many important issues are addressed with frankness, and some of the experiences described are quite difficult ones: dress code, time keeping, showing respect, boredom, the constraints of rules and regulations. These books and the supporting resources are ideal for work experience preparation and for follow-up. Each title has been well researched and approved by both teachers and careers specialists.

Supports the ASDAN Transition Challenge and Towards Independence Life Skills courses.
