Towns trial international work experience

FROME this month started an international work experience pilot with its German twinned town, Murrhardt. 

Clerk to Frome Town Council, Paul Wynne said, “Following earlier work with employers and those in Murrhardt, our international work experience pilot started this month.

“Two young people from Murrhardt are spending two weeks with solicitors Harris & Harris, and the Old Bath Arms. These two businesses have kindly opened their office and kitchen to enable the two-young people to gain valuable experience what it is like to work in this country.

“Thanks to both businesses and the host families who are providing accommodation.  Thanks also to Terry Bishop, apprenticeship project coordinator at Frome College who has worked tirelessly to get this project off the ground.

“We are working towards a return trip for young people in Frome later in the year.  This initiative is one of the products of the Thematic Networking Programme that Frome Town Council and Frome Twinning Association have supported over the last two years.”
