Year 10 Work Experience
2020 WORK EXPERIENCE ~ 13th – 17th July 2020
Work experience is a valuable opportunity for students to sample the world of work and to gain an insight into life outside the classroom. It is such a valuable opportunity and our students have always expressed how useful and rewarding they have found it. The experience often focuses the mind and prepares young people for the career choices they make in Year 11.
In order to make the process a valuable learning experience in which students can gain important employability skills, we ask all students to write a formal letter of application to our Director of Post 16, Mr Stone. Following their letter of application, students receive confirmation that they can take part and are encouraged to find their placement independently. This year’s deadline for receipt of letters of application is Friday, 11th October 2019.
All placements must have the appropriate insurances in place: Employer’s Liability Insurance and Public Liability Insurance and pre-placement health & safety checks will be carried out before approval. When students have secured their placements, they will need to return their completed work placement forms to the careers office in school. These are processed and the pre-placement health & safety check booked.
