Work Experience

Work experience is an opportunity for young people to learn and practise some of the skills they need to succeed in the business world. It supports their personal growth by:

  • Developing social skills, increasing confidence and promoting a sense of responsibility and independence;
  • Providing valuable and realistic insight into the world of work and up to date practices;
  • Providing information to help inform their decision making about the future career plans and may in some cases lead to offers of part-time employment.

Private Placements

A private placement is where you have found your own placement by either direct contact to a company or have been offered a placement through a family or friend contact. If you have found your own private placement please complete the letter with the correct contact details. Please let the placement know that the school will be in contact with them to confirm the correct insurance and Health & Safety is in place.

Any questions do not hesitate to contact Mrs Blair-Park.

What Types of Placements are Suitable?

All employers who offer placements will be required to meet with specific requirements including private placements. These exist to make sure your child gets the best possible opportunity to learn in a safe environment. All employers must:

  • Have up to date Public Liability and Employers Liability Insurance cover;
  • Provide an opportunity for students to undertake relevant and realistic tasks that develop skills and confidence;
  • Provide adequate supervision and support;
  • Have assessed the likely risks for the Student and have appropriate safety systems in place.
