Thank you to all the employers who have worked with us to provide our Year 10s a fantastic opportunity during their work experience in 2019.
At the end of the Spring Term each year all Year 10 students are given the opportunity to develop their understanding of the working environment and also to practise and develop useful learning and employment skills by undertaking a Work Experience placement.
The aim of Work Experience is not to solely focus on a career choice, although some students are fortunate enough to gain a placement in an area that they have an interest in and are determined to pursue post-16, but about experiencing the world of work at first hand.
Work Experience can often be a turning point for students as they begin to realise the level of skills that they have and also where there may be areas for development, elements that can then be supported on their return to school.
Finding successful placements for all students is a huge task so the initial preparation and selection of placement opportunities begins in September and you will receive a letter at that time, detailing the timetable until the actual Work Experience takes place.
