Work Experience

Work experience is an integral part of the Year 11 curriculum and provides an opportunity for young people to gain an insight into the ‘world of work' and to help prepare them for the responsibilities and opportunities of adult life.

Placements are defined as experience in which students carry out a range of tasks and duties more or less as would regular employees but with emphasis on the learning aspect of the experience. It is not intended to be training for a student's chosen career.

Students will work normal business hours and could be asked by the employer to visit the placement before starting work.

Students in Year 11 will have the opportunity to arrange a work experience placement over the course of a designated two week period. This will take place between Monday, 27th June 2016 and Friday, 8th July 2016.
