Work experience is a valuable way in which young people can find out what work is like while they are still at school. It means that they spend time in a placement doing real work for a real employer in a real organisation. Suitable work placements are not always easy to find and it is not possible for young people under 16 years of age to do some jobs. As part of their school curriculum, a period of work experience is being organised for students in Year 10 in February 2016.
The work experience process has been explained to the Year 10 students in assembly and they have been told how to use the database/site and how to make their choices. A direct link is on this site, just click on the Work Experience Portal at the top of the page. This is an online system that allows the student to view information about work experience jobs. Students need to use their school e-mail address and their password that they have set up for the system in their tutorial time. They will then be able to access the site from home/school.
If a student wishes to find their own placements must provide the school with full details using the ‘self placement’ form downloadable here. This can be collected from Mrs Bridson in the school office or download from the school site. We require a minimum of two months notice in order for Employed.im to make the necessary checks. Placements cannot be confirmed until these checks have been completed.
If you have any further queries please contact the Mrs. S Bridson or Head of Year Mr T Dargan
