Work Experience 2011

Simply better work experience July 2011


Simply better work experience July 2011

Simon BeltSimon Belt, a web and computer technology consultant, was asked by New Mills School Business and Enterprise College to provide work experience in July 2011 to some Year 10 school students so they could gain practical experience of writing articles for publications. As it is difficult for young people to gain commercial experience of journalism and writing for the web, I was more than happy to help them prepare and write-up some work for the New Mills Web on local businesses and organisations as part of their work experience. If they were good enough, I'd even publish some of their work on the Manchester Salon website.

 

Here's a timeline summary of what they did and achieved. Wish I'd have got them to work on my own website now...

Sara Porter Photography

 

Sara Porter Photography is a Hayfield based photography business, run by Sara Porter. Sara has had a love for photography since the age of 9. As a teenager, she loved the photography in magazines such as ‘Sky’. As photography wasn’t seen as a career as Sara grew up – more of a hobby – she studied science at university. Sara also has a degree in Psychology which she believes influences her art work; she says this gives her an insight into the way people think, helping her to relate to the customer. After university, Sara became a Chemistry teacher but still had a passion for photography. She continued it as a part-time thing, but as Sara got more and more requests to photograph for weddings and portraits, she decided to follow her dream and become a photographer.

New Mills Golf Club review by Hannah Mason

 

At the Alan (Mick) Jones charity event hosted at New Mills Golf Club, we sat down and enjoyed some lovely chips served to us in the clubhouse, which is surrounded by the lovely green fields and 18 playing holes. After plucking up the courage, we went around and spoke to members of the Golf Club about how they felt about the new Stewards, and how they felt about the Golf Club in general. Everyone we spoke to praised it as something of a second home.

New Mills Golf Club review by Kathrine Payne

 

The New Mills Golf Club, situated in Shaw Marsh, is a 104-year-old ‘institution’ in New Mills. I was feeling a little apprehensive about visiting the club and interviewing its members, having no idea what our story would be about, and having a pre-formed (and quite clichéd) impression of its members - serious old men in golfing jumpers. We were set to visit on their annual Charity Day, in memory of Alan (Mick) Jones, a loyal member of the club who contracted a long illness from which he sadly died a few years ago. Mick resided in The Ashgate Hospice around the time of his death, and that was one of the charities benefitting from the day.

New Mills Golf Club review by Yasmin Redfearn

 

New Mills Golf Club is an 18 hole course, that has been around for just over 100 years, and attracts lots of different types of people. I didn’t feel welcomed into the clubhouse as I arrived, as it seemed to be all members though I'm sure if you were into golf it would be a great place to go. The members appeared to want to keep themselves to themselves, though when asking to speak to some of them, I realised they were all lovely people but they still had a reserved manner about them. It also felt that none of the members wanted to express themselves too forthrightly in case they upset the top tier management. I understood why they said this as many of the members are friends with the top tier and also they look up to them. I believe the club tries to involve more people though by holding such events such as charity days and social events.
