The following paraphrases a works experience diary submitted in July 2017: 

"Thank you for giving me the opportunity to experience the world of work within Law Enforcement.  It was a pleasure meeting you and your colleagues and learning about customs and the police.  I was impressed at what I saw and learnt.  I particularly enjoyed the patrol car and assisting with enquiries.

I have improved my communication, confidence and people skills along with my common sense.  These skills will help me apply for work in later like and after my choices in year 11.  Thank you again for all the time and support that you gave me and I look forward to meeting with you and your colleagues in the future."
