This February half-term, two lucky students from Trinity School in Carlisle are spending a week with Story Homes to gain significant insight into the world of work as part of the Centre for Leadership Performance's Dream Placement Scheme.

The week long placement differs from the usual type of work experience as the focus is on leadership. This will give the students valuable knowledge and skills in understanding how business leaders work and the challenges they face.

Becky, 16 from Carlisle hopes that the Dream Placement will provide her with more knowledge of the working world as she feels that school doesn't give her a great view of how businesses work. She feels as though the placement will allow her to broaden her communications skills, as well as helping her to develop necessary skills in life that will help towards her getting a job in the future.

Jake, 17 from Brampton currently has limited work experience and isn't quite sure what he wants to do as a career and hopes that the placement will be instrumental in helping him decide what he ultimately would like to pursue in the future.

Sarah Glass from the Centre for Leadership Performance said: "We are always so impressed by the students we see — their talent and commitment is amazing. That is also reflected by the commitment of our host companies who are determined to ensure their students gain a hugely beneficial experience."
