In year 10 we offer two weeks work experience late in the Spring term. The young person is expected to source their own work experience if possible and we will carry out health & safety checks before they can start. We will take them to an informal interview so they know what is expected of them and they will have a diary to fill in as evidence of their work experience.
In year 11 our students have the choice of either extended work experience (every Thursday), or join our Princes Trust team looking at working together and entrepreneurial skills. Extended work experience can vary from a one week trial to a whole school year.
We have an extensive portfolio of work experience providers and work very closely with them. We are grateful to all of them for giving our students a chance to flourish in a working environment.
