Fantastic work experience opportunities in TreloarPrint
At Treloar’s, we are lucky to have a Karten Centre – TreloarPrint which provides cost-effective printing services for our internal departments and external customers together with providing a fantastic opportunity for our students and interns to get involved in work experience placements.
We are pleased to introduce Libby who is a new student to Treloar’s and she has already been able to control several machines in TreloarPrint to create booklets, cards and posters. Libby has been given a bespoke computer mouse/joystick set-up, and has been using it to complete a few jobs for TreloarPrint customers.
Libby did an excellent job creating a square greeting card for a local charity last week. The customer was over the moon with the sample print, and has now ordered 50 of them.
TreloarPrint Technician and former Treloar’s student, Aaron Dyer, said: “I’m so proud of Libby and her really fantastic effort, the joystick and click button set-up are working very well. I am so impressed with her determination; in March, she was able to demonstrate her set-up to a small group of visitors as part of the Lord Mayor’s tour.”
As well as work experience opportunities, our Supported Internship Programme students have been working on their digital skills and qualifications including:
· Hashim who is learning some complex design layout and CAD skills to better enable him to access employment possibilities after Treloar’s
· Emily who is learning how to set up and make good use of the features of Outlook Calendar system and Reminders on her iPhone
· Amos who has been undertaking work experience to enable him to develop his communication skills: he has printed posters for the Marketing team and several Christmas cards for Worshipful Companies last November
· Cameron who worked on several projects last term: packing, talking to customers and developing his office admin skills
As ever, it’s been a busy time at TreloarPrint and we are very grateful to the Karten Network for their support in making all these essential opportunities available for our students to help them develop and build the skills they need to thrive in their future lives.
