Year 10 Work Experience
YEAR 10 WORK EXPERIENCE
We are excited to formally launch our Year 10 Work experience with you, our parent community.
Year 10 work experience is planned for the 10th of July 2023 (the penultimate week of Summer Term). We are hoping that this valuable experience will provide our students with an introduction into the world of work through undertaking a work placement on employer premises, carrying out tasks or duties in the role of an employee and learn valuable work skills such as punctuality, communication, commitment and teamwork.
Prior to work experience, students will receive the correct preparation regarding how to find their own placement, assistance with being interviewed, advice on travel and health and safety and work.
Our partnership with 'Our Futures Ltd' are working with the School in line with all government guidelines. As such, we will check that employers have up to date Employers Liability Insurance at the time of the placement, brief them on work experience and best practice, and undertake health & safety appraisals where necessary to ensure the health, safety and welfare of students. While on placement students will be monitored by a member of school staff so that they can check attendance and progress.
