Year 12 Work Experience
We are excited to formally launch our Year 12 Work experience with you, our student and parent community.
Year 12 work experience is planned for the 26th June 2023.
We are hoping that this valuable experience will provide our students with a further exploration into the world of work through undertaking a work placement on site with an employer, 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 creating a CV and cover letter, how to stand out in any potential interview and guidance health and safety and work.
During the course of planning and approving work experience placements, we will follow all government guidelines and legal frameworks. As such, we will need to check that employers have up to date Employers Liability Insurance at the time of the placement, work with employers on how to help our students get the most from their experience 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.

AFTER THE PLACEMENT
Many young people find work experience is a key influence in developing their self-esteem and enjoy the time spent in an adult environment. Students will get a chance to discuss their experiences in sixth form but as a parent you can also talk over what your child has gained from the experience and highlight the importance of the experience in developing a CV or writing their Apprenticeship, further employment and/or UCAS application.
