Work Experience

Before the Easter break three pupils from local secondary school, Glan-y-Môr spent a week at South Caernarfon Creameries on work experience; Siôn Owen in the Engineering department, Aaron Jones in the office/IT and Kia Hughes in the laboratory. All three were eager to learn and it was a pleasure to have them on site.

The business always wants to support educational initiatives when possible. Having the opportunity to experience real working life helps pupils to plan their future and choose a career of interest to them. .

Siôn found his time in the engineering department useful and said “I want to be an electrician and it was good to be able to see how a engineering department works. I saw different equipment being repaired and all the paperwork that has to be done. I wish to thank everyone for their welcome. I enjoyed it very much”.

Aaron also found the experience worthwhile commentingthat “it was interesting to see cheese production and the new factory being prepared. Kia was kept busy testing milk, weighing chemicals and swabing and said that she had “learnt that hygiene and quality is very important in a food factory”.
