It Worked For Me

About The Play

A play in preparation for work experience

Suitable for years 10 or 11 (prior to work experience).

A comical play that covers the issues of:

  • What to expect in the workplace
  • Being prepared to work hard – what are your responsibilities
  • Setting personal goals – making the most of your time
  • Making a good impression
  • The importance of punctuality and attendance
  • Acting on feedback and taking notes
  • What to wear
  • Feeling nerviouse and how to conquer your nerves
  • Being polite, friendly and respectful to your co-workers
  • What to do in the very unlikely event that a co-worker is nasty to you or says something inappropriate
  • What to do once your work experience is over – how build on your success

This play tells the story of three very different school friends during their work experience.The first is over confident and alienates their co-workers, the second is too shy to fully participate, while the third makes the most of every opportunity – even when not everything goes to plan.
