Specsavers Petersfield in The Square has joined forces with local language school English Naturally to offer work experience to some of their students over the next few weeks.
The school, based in Winchester, has welcomed students from all over Europe to Hampshire for over two decades. They work in partnership with local businesses to offer work shadowing to help students improve their language skills in a professional environment.
Putting learning into practice
Lucy Lomax, on behalf of English Naturally, said: ‘We have found that work shadowing is an important part of helping our students to put their study into practice.
‘Knowing the team in Petersfield, we are confident and happy that our students will leave with some useful new phrases and might find they now want to become opticians.’
A word from the store director
Jo Cox, store director in Petersfield, said: ‘We are delighted to be able to work with English Naturally and look forward to welcoming their students to our store.
‘We hope that they enjoy their time with us, and learn a great deal – we know we will learn a great deal from them too.’
