The work experience programme is an integral part of our careers provision for Year 10 students. This year, placements will take place between 8th - 12th July 2024.

For five days, instead of coming to school, students will attend a workplace and become involved in that business as if they are a new employee. It is an opportunity for students to find out what the world of work is like. They will be expected to work alongside other employees, following the same pattern of the working day. The work placement may be linked to future work plans, but it does not need to be. Students can use the time to experience an unknown industry or just to develop their personal skills and experiences.
