Case Study

RYAN BULL

Form the Future were delighted to welcome 18 year old Ryan on a six-month work experience placement recently. He joined us in the office one day a week, whilst balancing his studies at Cottenham Sixth Form and a part-time job at Michael House Café in Cambridge town centre.

We are dedicated to ensuring that students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), like Ryan, can gain valuable workplace experience that can help them to secure a paid job once they leave education.

We were initially approached by his college to provide work experience for 7 weeks, but his lovely personality and positive attitude meant he soon become indispensable!

As well as providing some much-needed support to our Events team, he was also able to assist the Marketing Manager and work on both our Mentoring and Cambridge LaunchPad programmes.

“It’s been really nice being part of such a close-knit organisation – it’s such a nice working environment. I liked doing different jobs for people – it’s been so varied and given me a chance to improve my computer skills.”
