Students in Year 10 are fully supported to gain work experience placements to enhance their employability skills and personal development.
This helps fulfil every school’s statutory requirement for work related learning. This opportunity is vital to ensuring students make an informed choice about their future education and career path. Furthermore, this will support many of our students when applying to Post-16 establishments and/or future employers.
Students are encouraged to find their own placements according to their interests and future career aspirations. However, each year local businesses and organisations kindly guarantee us some placements and we also have a database of placements that our students have used in previous years available. We advise our students to contact prospective placements by phone or by letter.
For more information about work experience speak to a member of the careers team.
We are proud to work with Education2Work who ensure work placements meet health and safety requirements. They also provide work placements with local companies. Find out more on their site: www.education2work.co.uk
