Work Experience

Work Experience 2024

Work experience provides students with a valuable insight into the world of work; the importance of good time keeping, the need to travel to work, the longer working day/week compared to school, being able to follow instructions and the need to be able to work independently. It also provides an opportunity to build on the range of transferrable skills they have already developed through their studies and begins to identify the additional skills they will need to develop in order to secure permanent employment.

Further information can be found in the letter attached below.
