Is it for me?

“The trip to Jaguar was
great. I never knew there
was so much to making
a car. And talking to one
of the bosses was a real
bonus!”

“It was quite scary
interviewing the
shoppers but they were
all really friendly.”

“Looking around the store I
realised that all of the workers
were doing exactly what we
had learnt about in class.”

I never knew the manager was
responsible for so many people.
When he told me I didn’t believe
him. Now, I want to do that job!”

“The coursework is really
hard but I like the
independence it gives me in
class.”

“Time flies by in some
lessons because I am so
wrapped up in my own
work.”

“I didn’t realise
I knew so
much already.
I’ve learnt so
much more
though


not
just from the
internet but
from other
people.”

“What I planned
to do with my
work went a bit
wrong. But I’ve
changed a few
things and it’s
looking much
better now.”

“Sometimes I don’t agree
with other people’s views


so I tell them mine.
Sometimes I’m wrong!”

“Everytime I buy
something now I ask
myself is it really worth
that much?”
