Paper bales ready for delivery

Work experience helps get CVs noticed and helps teenagers decide which job they want to do along with delivering a massive confidence boost.

Secondary school pupils with special needs have chance to reap those benefits with a work placement at Crow Recycling in Hillfields, Coventry.

The registered charity was set up in 1985 to provide work placements for disabled people by processing waste paper and used drinks cans for recycling.

School pupils on work experience help with sorting, crushing and baling drinks cans along with sorting, shredding and baling paper. They also help run the Scrapstore where people can buy waste materials to use for arts and crafts.

Pupils on work experience are supervised by staff and volunteers with Disclosure and Barring Service checks.
