A group of four students from The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London (CONEL) have completed work experience with The British Red Cross.

The British Red Cross which is known for its pioneering work and global humanitarian efforts across the globe, partnered with CONEL’s Creative Media and Computing and IT departments and invited students to apply for a work experience programme.

After undergoing a rigorous selection process which assessed their dedication, passion and aptitude for the humanitarian field, four students were selected to participate in a week-long British Red Cross work experience programme from 19 February to 23 February.

The four CONEL students who took part in the programme were: 

During the work experience placement, the students immersed themselves in various roles within the organisation which included communications, media relations and community outreach. The programme took place both online and in person and was designed to provide them with hands-on experience that would enable them to create positive change within their communities.

Under the guidance of experienced professionals within the organisation, students took on new challenges, embraced learning opportunities and developed professional skills.

Jasmine White, who is currently studying Creative Media Production – Level 3 Extended Diploma, said: “Engaging in the Red Cross Work Experience Program has been an invaluable opportunity for personal and professional growth, thank you.”

Lune Addes, an IT – Level 1 Introductory Diploma student, said: “The Red Cross program helped me learn a lot and grow. Thank you!” 

Kehinde Ayomikun Ogunfowokan, an IT – Level 1 Introductory Diploma student, said: “The Red Cross work experience taught me how to understand and engage with customers effectively.”

Upon completing their work experience, The British Red Cross awarded each student with a certificate acknowledging their commitment to humanitarian service and their contributions during their time with the organisation. 

We work with a variety of organisations and employers to provide valuable work experience placements for all full-time students. These placements enable students to gain a deeper understanding of working life, develop transferable skills, make informed choices about their future careers and build their professional network.
