In the summer term Year 10 students participate in a two-week work experience placement. This is an integral part of their curriculum and is therefore compulsory.
Ideally the placement should be in an area of employment which is of interest. Students find their own placement, gaining experience in writing letters of application and attending interviews. We have a database of companies which students have used in the past which may be of benefit.
Students gain a great deal from completing a work experience placement, learning about the world of work, how to relate to others and benefiting from taking on new roles and responsibilities. Valuable skills are learned and students also find direction on future college and career choices.
