And can help students

  • learn about some of the demands, responsibilities and routines of working life.
  • apply some of the skills they have been learning at school to the workplace.
  • provide an opportunity in comparing some of their career ideas with actual experiences.
  • to develop enterprise and employability skills.

The success of our work experience is down to the generosity of the businesses providing our students the chance to spend time in their workplace offering these opportunities. All students have to be supervised and are offered planned programmes of work by the employers, some of which have been outstanding at a very high level. They give up their time freely in support of our young people and we are very grateful for this.
