*** Deadline ***
Year 10 Work Experience. Deadline for confirmed placements and forms returned is
Friday 16th February
After discussions, the Senior Leadership Team has decided that it will be in the best interests of our students to complete their Work Experience during Year 10 as opposed to Year 11. Work Experience will therefore take place during the Summer Term next year.
The Programme will be launched in the week commencing 27th November 2017. During Registration, all students in Year 10 will be given a Work Experience letter and instructions on how to secure a placement.
Work Experience is a valuable opportunity in helping our students to prepare for the world of work. It also gives them a sample of a potential career and most importantly, allows the student to gain the independent skills of searching for a job, contacting an employer and fulfilling a role within an organisation.
Our school values your support in encouraging your son/daughter to make arrangements as soon as possible. It is a legal requirement for the school to independently health and safety check each placement. I am sure you will appreciate this process takes a significant amount of time and we want to ensure that if there are any problems students can find a satisfactory alternative placement. With this in mind, the deadline date for securing placements and returning paperwork is Friday 16th February 2018.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at school, either by email or telephone.
