Work experience is an important part of the academic year for Year 10 students. It allows students to gain a valuable insight into the world of work and develop key employability skills. Many employers now require young people to have attended work experience prior to employment and will expect to discuss this at interview.
To prepare students for the future, we require students to take responsibility for organising their own placement. This is so that the student is directly involved in choosing the right placement, taking ownership of their choices and to gain first-hand experience of the application process.
