Experiences of Workplaces
Every pupil should have first-hand experiences of the workplace through work visits, work shadowing and/or work experience to help their exploration of career opportunities, and expand their networks.
Very valuable curriculum time is dedicated to Work Experience placements in the summer term for both Year 10 and Year 12. These take place for one week and have been highly successful. Students develop many employability skills, they have to work out transport routes and arrangements, which can often take them out of their comfort zone. Many students have even secured part-time jobs as a result of this experience.
