Here are some thoughts from two former work placement students about their experience working at the Cranedale Centre.

Thomas Kilkenny
University of York, 2016/2017.

“My time at the Cranedale Field Studies Centre was one of the most rewarding years of my university career, providing me with a huge suite of knowledge, experience and insight. It combined both the field of education and the outdoors to give me an invaluable opportunity to observe and actively teach students from a variety of ages in so many beautiful natural settings, ranging from the Yorkshire Moors to the Holderness coastline and beyond! In my time with the centre, I have rockpooled for crabs at Selwicks Bay, witnessed incredible views from the top of Dalby Forest and become fully integrated in a tutor team and incredible centre at the heart of the picturesque Yorkshire Wolds. This is an opportunity not to be missed!”

Charlotte Howard
Bangor University, 2012/2013.
“I was lucky enough to secure a placement at the Cranedale Centre for the academic year of 2012/13, as part of my undergraduate degree at Bangor University. The Centre is a very welcoming workplace and the tutors supported me in developing skills in leadership, communication and organisation. I learned the importance of professionalism, through the provision of an outstanding standard of teaching and exceptional customer service for which the Cranedale Centre is renowned. The experience that I gained during my placement has been invaluable for the progression of my career and I would highly recommend the Education Assistant placement to any dedicated student!”
