Tommy’s Story – Supported Work Experience

Student background

Tommy is a Year 10 student from Regents Park Community College in Southampton

He was referred to the Supported Work Experience Programme by his school who wanted us to find him a placement to support his learning at school and increase his confidence.

During the initial meeting Tommy was confident and talked about how he would like to be a paramedic when he leaves school and expressed an interest in working in a customer facing role to help him learn valuable transferable skills for post 16 education.

He worked with a member of EBP South staff to identify some possible placements which would give him these opportunities.
