In Year 11, we have a programme of study that enables pupils to carry out some work experience.
Pupils typically spend the some time in school working on areas such as interview technique, health and safety and CV writing and then they will take part in a short period of work experience before Christmas and after February half-term. The work experience takes place typically on a Friday and consists of two 7 week placements.
Pupils are currently involved in work placements at Halfords, various charity shops, children’s centres, a café, a hairdressers, our own school kitchen and a tyre and exhaust fitters. Some of our pupils have been involved in supported work placements where they have attended placements with a teaching assistant. It is our aim that all pupils will be able to access some form of work experience in Year 11.
Here are some of the photos of our pupils in their placements.
Below is a monitoring visit report of a pupil that visited a work placement.
