Work Experience Information
For the week 15th July to 19th July 2013 you will have the opportunity to take up a work experience placement. You are requested to keep these dates free of commitments. We suggest that arrangements are made well in advance to change any commitments, such as part time employment, should they clash with work experience hours.
You are required to find your own placement and have been issued with a booklet to assist with the process. All placements are required to complete a work experience placement form and all placements are checked for their suitability by Working 2gether. Please note that placements need to be within the Trafford or Cheshire areas. As all placements are health and safety vetted, placements outside of these areas may incur a cost to parents/carers of up to £80 depending on the charge imposed from the out of area office undertaking the checks. Please note that we cannot authorise any placement outside of the UK nor can we authorise any placement that does not hold Employers Liability Insurance, this is the insurance that covers students whilst on work experience.
We ask that you keep to any deadlines set, failure to adhere to deadlines could result in the placement not being authorised.
Please read through your booklet and to start looking for a placement as soon as possible.
