We recently had the pleasure of Caitlyn’s company during her work experience for year 10. She astounded us with her maturity and ability to learn at breakneck speed. Here’s Caitlyn’s overview of her week with Schoop.
At my time at Schoop I have leant many things. I learnt about sales, marketing, customer support and also the important things to consider when setting up and running a business.
However, the thing I have learnt the most is how parental engagement can effect a child’s education, and how Schoop can help schools do this. They showed me how quick and easy it is to let a parent or carer know what is going on in the school and how they can help their child. This week they have also asked me to think about how Schoop could be improved from a pupil’s, parent’s, and teacher’s point of view.
I thought about this a lot – thinking about what I would want to get out of Schoop and we came up with Schoop Club. Schoop club would be a chance for the pupils to post on Schoop as well as the teachers. They would give encouragement and tips to the younger, and also up-and-coming students.
My overall view of the company, the app and what they are trying to do is excellent, I see no excuse why a school, including my own, would not want to use Schoop to better their students. I have had an amazing time and would like to say thank you to the entire Schoop team for giving me an amazing experience and I hope to return in the future.
Well! What can I say?
Schoop Club sounds like a great idea, and we’ll do our best to get it up and running before the start of the new term.
Thank you Caitlyn. I am supremely confident you will excel in your GCSE’s, A Levels and beyond.
You are welcome back any time.
