Work Experience

A special feature of Year 10 is Work Experience

Students get to immerse themselves in an employment sector of their choice. This often shapes future career choices and develops the student’s perspective of the workplace. This year it will run for 2 weeks from 2nd July 2018.

We are asking that students and their parents find a work placement by 8th February 2018  The Student Placement form should be filled in once this has happened.and handed into the library. This can be downloaded from the right hand side of the page.

If you have any questions or concerns then please contact Mr Gee or Mrs Cook  

Where to start?
Start by thinking about what your interests are and what you think you might be good at.
It’s a good idea to brainstorm lots of ideas first. You can do this with friends or family. Get everything down on paper to start. Check out who does what you’re interested in
If you’re really not sure how your interests match up with different jobs, some of the following websites can help.
