Week commencing Monday 14th February 2022

Year 10 Work Experience

This year’s work experience will be for one week commencing Monday 14th February 2022

Each year our students find work experience to be invaluable as it gives them an insight into the real world of work and leads them to investigate employment opportunities with increased confidence and self-awareness.  These skills can have a positive impact on academic achievement. 

Students are required, with parental guidance if necessary, to seek their own places for their work experience.  These placements may, or may not, be directly connected with their future career.

It is essential that all students attend placements in a safe and healthy environment and only with employers who have in place a current Employer’s Liability Insurance.  To this end, all placements are checked through Entrust to ensure they meet Health and Safety Standards and all legal requirements for Child Protection.

Students should expect to provide their own lunches, and we ask parents to make appropriate travel arrangements to and from the place of work; the hours of work will normally be those of the establishment at which the individual student is undertaking the work placement.

The progress of students will be monitored by a member of staff either visiting or telephoning the employer during the placement; employers will be asked to provide a brief written report at the end of the placement.  Students will be expected to complete a work experience log.

Please complete and return the form to the white box at the front admin office before Friday 8th October 2021 so that the appropriate checks can be carried out.
