In the summer term Year 10 students participate in a work experience programme. This could be a placement within an area of employment which is of interest; students are responsible for finding their own placement, gaining experience in writing letters of application and attending interviews. Alternatively the school runs an internal work experience programme providing students with the opportunity of developing marketing, budgeting and presentational skills within a team environment.
Students gain a great deal from completing work experience activities, learning about the world of work, how to relate to others and benefiting from taking on new roles and responsibilities. Valuable skills are learned and students also find direction on future college and career choices.
