My week on work experience with Sanctuary Housing

21 July 2017 – 9:00 am | No Comment

Hello, my name is Mohamed Derie and I from Hinde House School and during the week beginning 10 July 2017, I was on work experience at Sanctuary Housing – they have given me an insight into the world of work. I will be helped the Maintenance Team and see what their role is within Sanctuary, and then I assisted the front of house on reception  and taking part in admin tasks, which is a critical role within Sanctuary.

On my first visit I made my way to Roman ridge, which is a scheme for people over the age of 55. My favourite time at Sanctuary was when I went to the Workshop which I found intriguing because they have ties to major corporations such as Disney and BBC and how they perform tasks for their clients. They create games and websites or just make tweaks to make it even better. They have a team full of specialists which work together to achieve their client’s goal. Furthermore I went to another project called the lunch club at a local church, which has been running for about 40 years; which serve food and arrange games for the attendees to play, and I assisted them by helping them make the food and then serving it.

At school I am interested in science and computer science. Hopefully In the future I would like to pursue programming. I am making the most at my time here at Sanctuary as I have learned and encountered new things.
