Work Experience @ AmmA 2017

By AmmA  //  Work Experience  //  No Comments

As in previous years, we are offering Work Experience for your students during the week commencing Monday 10th April: 9.30 a.m. – 4.00 p.m. daily.

This Work Experience consists of a ‘task’ that will be set for each of the groups involved.  The task will reflect the work skills that are expected in the music and multi media workplace.  The work will be set, monitored and assessed by AmmA staff.  The task will be industry standard work and will necessitate teamwork and working to tight deadlines.

Students will have to make an online application to secure a place on the programme.  In the Centre we consider the responses on the online application to be a very important part of the work experience and last year it was the quality of information supplied on the form that allowed us to allocate the limited places available.

The two work experience programmes are as follows:

Group 1 Music Technology [2 days]: Monday 10th & Tuesday 11th April 2017 (4 PLACES AVAILABLE – LOWER/UPPER SIXTH)

Group 2 Multi-Media Technology [2 days]: Wednesday 12th & Thursday 13th April 2017 (12 PLACES AVAILABLE – AGE 16+)

This is the only ‘work experience’ offered by AmmA due to the constraints on our staff throughout the year.

Applications must be submitted online by Friday 24th March 2017.  Contact teachers will then be notified regarding allocation of places.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact the AmmA Centre on 028 3751 2920.
