Work Experience

Work Experience can mark a turning point in a young person's life. Please encourage your child to make the most of this invaluable but optional opportunity.

The benefits are many and include helping students to:

  • Experience different types of work enabling them to confirm or reject career ideas
  • Develop their confidence
  • Collect evidence for their Record of Achievement which is very useful at interviews: students are often asked about work experience at interview
  • Develop their maturity and key skills
  • Learn about what is expected of an employee
  • Increase their motivation
  • Develop their knowledge in their chosen area of work
  • Gain a greater understanding of different environments and the working world in general

Year 10 Block Work Experience will take place for 3 days.
