CCRI’s latest placement student

CCRI’s latest placement student

A couple of weeks ago, Imogen Young joined CCRI as the latest of our placement students. Each academic year, we offer the opportunity of a paid placement within CCRI, and Imogen has joined us from UWE where she is an Environmental Science student. By way of an introduction we asked Imogen to write a few lines about herself.

For the past few years, the CCRI has recruited an annual placement student, providing opportunities to assist on research projects and develop new knowledge and skills. This work experience has often helped our alumni find employment after completing their degrees, including our two most recent placement students, who told us that the experience that they gained whilst at the CCRI was instrumental in their recent job successes.

As part of our annual placement student’s time here in the CCRI, they are encouraged to develop their skills in whatever way they wish. This year, Eloise Fresnay has been ‘WWOOFING’ on an Organic farm near Stroud. Eloise has also been keeping a Blog of her activities, and you can read more about them and how she originally began WWOOFING.
