The school works with parents and carers to organise work placement opportunities for its Year 10 students providing them with a great chance to experience working life and develop the valuable skills they’re going to need for the future.
The placements prepare the students for the transition from education to work and enable them to gain an insight into working life. The work experience provides practice in making job applications and going for interviews and it gives students the opportunity to collect a portfolio of evidence which they can show prospective employers highlighting skills such as team working, motivation, problem solving and communication skills.
