Work experience is offered to our Year 10 and Year 12 students during the Summer term. By gaining work experience in relevant sectors our students can gain a real advantage when applying for university or work. While on work experience students will be able to talk with and observe skilled and qualified people who can give them a better idea of what their job involves. It is an opportunity to network and find contacts.
All students are expected to find their own work placements. Taking personal responsibility for finding the placement and researching their further education and career path is an important part of the process. While we will provide support and inspiration in school expect students to actively find the placement and apply for it themselves – and they will learn a great deal from doing so.
If your son/daughter is having any difficulty with the process please ask them to come and see Mrs Cole in Student Services for help.
