Monday 15th July – Friday 19th July 2019
Each year our Year 10 students participate in a period of work experience which this academic year will be running from Monday 15th July to Friday 19th July 2019.
Work experience is when the student spends time in an adult working environment carrying out tasks and duties more or less as an employee, but with the emphasis on learning about the world of work. The placement will not necessarily reflect the eventual career choice of the student but should allow a broad experience of the world of work and an opportunity to practice key skills they have learned at school and develop their personality and the skills that employers are looking for in the workplace.
It is the student’s responsibility to find and arrange their own placement and we recommend that they make contact with the employer rather than the Parent/Carer. For some placements there is great demand and competition e.g. engineering, law, sports and leisure. The earlier the student applies, the more likely they are to secure a placement.
Students who have registered in school have now been issued with all the relevant booklets and information to bring home, including a Parent/Carer booklet. From Autumn 2018, we will be working with Mploy Solutions’ new MAPS platform. Full details has been provided in the booklets.
