Year 10 Work Experience

Monday 20th March 2017 – Friday 25th March 2017 inclusive

Work experience is a valuable way in which young people can find out what work is like while they are still at school. It means that they spend time in a placement doing real work for a real employer in a real organisation.  Suitable work placements are not always easy to find and it is not possible for young people under 16 years of age to do some jobs.  As part of their school curriculum, a period of work experience is being organised for students in Year 10 in March 2017.

The students have been given a Work Experience Guide booklet downloadable here that explains the process, with important dates and deadlines on the back page.  The process has also been explained to the Year 10 students in assembly and they have been told how to use the database/site and how to make their choices.   A direct link is on this site, just click on the Work Experience Portal at the top of the page.  This is an online system that allows the student to view information about work experience jobs.  Students need to use their school e-mail address and their password that they have set up for the system in their tutorial time.  They will then be able to access the site from home/school.

If a student wishes to find their own placements must provide the school with full details using the ‘self placement’ form downloadable here.  This can be collected from Mrs Bridson in the school office or download from the school site.  We require a minimum of two months notice in order for to make the necessary checks.  Placements cannot be confirmed until these checks have been completed.

If you have any further queries please contact Mr Ryder-Clague/ Mrs. S Bridson or Head of Year Miss Watts
