RE: Work Experience 2nd – 6th July 2018
Pupils in year 10 are expected to participate in a one week work experience. This year’s placement is scheduled to take place just prior to the summer holidays.
The purpose of this placement is to provide young people with the experience of the world of work. Some pupils use this experience to link with future career plans but unrelated experiences are equally valuable as regards their development.
Pupils are expected to organise their own placement, pupils have been known to organise their Work Experience further than locality but this is not always desirable, practical and can be very expensive. Pupils are not able to work beyond 7pm in the evening and cannot start placements before 7am.
If your child is taking part in a DOE activity or on foreign trip during the work experience week an additional date can be arranged. Pupils on either of the above activities can complete a week experience week, 9th – 13th July 2018.
If your child struggles to find their own placement there will be a number of suitable placements available and organised by Mrs Jones.
A self-placement form is attached with this letter and should be completed by the employer, parent and pupil. Completed forms are to be handed in to Mrs Jones or to form tutors by Friday 23rd March 2018.
Click here for the self placement form.
During the placement pupils will be visited or contacted by a representative of the school.
It is now in the pupil’s interest that they engage with the Work Experience process as soon as possible and seek to find a suitable placement.
If you would like to speak to me about the above then please don’t hesitate in contacting me.
Mrs M Jones
