A Warship and a Work Experience Week to Remember

My name is Jessica Tinker and I am a Year 10 student from Holmfirth High School and on the 31st of March 2014, I joined Juice Learning for a week of work experience. In this week I helped prepare for their annual Behavioural Safety Training Showcase aboard the HMS Belfast, in London, which was held on April 2nd 2014. This is an annual event and I was delighted that I was part of the team to deliver the different, yet amazing showcase!

Last year the event was held at the Churchill War Rooms and it is a major annual event for the team at Juice Learning. This particular event allows Juice Learning a unique opportunity to introduce new people to the company.

Over 60 Health and Safety professionals joined us for the event, from companies including; Arriva, BP, Kuehne+Nagel, Lafarge Tarmac, Costain, Travis Perkins, AMEC & Sodexo, amongst many others.

The day was split into two 3-hour Behavioural Safety Training sessions, delivered by Juice Learning’s Learning and Development Director, Matt Cleve.  The session included the basic principles of behavioural safety and its impact within the working environment. Theatre and media was also included in the sessions and they worked perfectly with the location, a former Royal Navy ship! Within the performances, we were able to present a wide range of challenging attitudes and behaviours, combined with tensions between the Royal Navy Project Manager (played by Owain Ford) and Civilian Contractors (played by Jim Allen and Hayley Mason), all of these contributed to an unsafe working environment and lead to a disastrous consequence.

John O’Keefe, Head of Health & Safety at the London Legacy Development Corporation, attended both the afternoon and the morning sessions and spoke about Juice Learning and how he has worked with them in the past. John’s feedback was extremely positive for the company, a selection of comments include:

Delegate feedback was also overwhelmingly positive, with many of the attendees stating that the blend of theatre, media and discussion made the subject feel “real” and hard hitting! Feedback from the delegates include:

I found the event very interesting and it was a great experience for me to take away for my future chosen career. It also showed me that not all events have to be boring, as Juice Learning presented an inspiring session, including; not only getting the importance of the content across to the delegates, but also making it fun and exciting by including media and theatrical performances.

I have thoroughly enjoyed myself, every single minute, on my week of work experience at Juice Learning! Within a week I feel my confidence levels and communication skills have increased and improved, this is brilliant as it will help me in the future. Even though I have been on my work experience, the team found me a lot of work to participate in and have also included me in discussions regarding the high profile event. The whole experience of being part of the Juice Learning team, from being in the office and being in London has been a fantastic and an extremely interesting experience! Each member of the team made me feel very comfortable and this made my week even more enjoyable! My work at Juice Learning has been fantastic and I don’t want to leave!
