Year 10 Work Experience

All Year 10 students take part in a week of Work Experience towards the end of the summer term. This year, work experience will take place from Monday 19th June to Friday 23rd June 2017. Work experience provides our students with a valuable insight into the working world, teaches each student more about what to expect of life after school and provides a valuable addition to their CV. For some, it will also provide an exciting opportunity to gain an insight into a specific career in which they are interested.

Our Work Experience programme is delivered in partnership with Youth Connexions. Students can request a placement sourced by Youth Connexions via the Link2 system, or can alternatively arrange their own placement. Private placements will be checked for Health and Safety by Youth Connexions before they are approved.
