At Hollywater School we are building relationships with our local employers.  These employers enable us to experience work placements, meet them and their employees.  Some companies and employers have made videos about the jobs they employ people to do.  This allows our pupils to have the opportunitiy to see what some job roles are and the skills needed to complete them.
