A student learning how to display fruits at CAG’s pantry areas
For students attached to CAG, the People Services team taught them how to clean and prepare the pantries and meeting rooms, as well as ensure that the pantry areas are well stocked with refreshments.
Jill Phillips, Senior Manager, People Team, who was the programme manager for this two-week job trial shared, “We were heartened to observe that the students have adapted well to their jobs during this trial. This helps Metta School to have an even better understanding of the students’ aptitudes and job preferences, which will allow them to be matched to jobs that are suitable for them when they go on a longer on-the-job training programme next year.”
Jill added, “We are very grateful for the support from our partners and fellow CAG colleagues for working out specific job scopes that are suitable for the students, and for being such understanding mentors. Some of the mentors told us that they were impressed with the students’ earnest learning attitude and diligence, and that they looked forward to seeing the students every day.”
