Work Experience

We are delighted to announce that in-person work experience will be available to our Year 10 and Year 12 students this summer.

A work experience placement aims to give young people a taste of ‘The World of Work’ so that they may begin to appreciate the demands that will be made upon them when they enter employment. It can also help them to decide on which career path they’d like to take.

Each student will be expected to attempt to arrange their own placement with support from parents, relatives, friends and other contacts. We also encourage students to find their own placements by contacting employers directly - students will not be allowed to take a placement with a close relative. This is because facing new environments is part of the experience. However, if the placement is aligned to their career ambitions and there is a new learning opportunity, it will be considered, as we appreciate that there may be difficulties with sourcing placements.

We will be working with The River Learning Trust Work Experience Project Manager, who will be undertaking the mandatory health and safety checks and helping to secure placements.

  • Year 10 – 28-30 June 2023
  • Year 12 – 5-7 July 2023
