Unfortunately, there is no parking space. However, you can park on Waverley Road as there is no need to have a permit.
If you are travelling by motorbike or bicycle, you can park in the back of the office.
Work experience is not a paid activity because it provides a general introduction to the world of work. For one week, you will work up to 40 hours and will be treated as a normal employee.
When going to work, you need to look neat. There is no need to wear a suit, but you can come dressed in a shirt and jeans.
Safeguarding Policy For Employers
Employees are encouraged to reveal and report any allegations of abuse against themselves or other employees, without prejudice, in the work place. This abuse can be physical, sexual, emotional or psychological.
Staff in the work place should be aware of any signs of abuse in young people. These could be physical bruising or marks, change of behaviour or other abnormal behavioural patterns.
If you work in an office like this, you have to obey the laws protecting personal data. You can not talk to anyone about confidential data.
If an employee stole a document, the consequence would be to inform the college and submit a negative report to the police.
Smoking, Alcohol and Drugs
Smoking, drinking and drug use is banned in the workplace.
The employee should not use their mobile phone at work as it can interfere with the performance of their duties and distract other employees. An employee may use a private phone only during breaks. The phone should be switched off or muted.
Email and Internet
An employee at work should not use their private e-mail and enter web pages for their own benefit, or for fun.
