Accessing the local community
Diogo is one of our students who accesses the local community for work experience. For the last six months he has been going to Sainsbury’s in Wandsworth where he has been doing a variety of jobs from stacking shelves to recycling the packaging. At first he needed supervision when loading trolleys with stock and pulling them through the store but by the end of his placement he was doing this independently. He often said hello to customers and worked on how to help them find items.
When asked about what he did at Sainsbury’s and what he enjoyed during his time there Diogo replied “I did lots of different jobs… I stacked the shelves, I smashed the boxes.”
