Work experience for Year 10 students

YEAR 10 WORK EXPERIENCE REMINDER

All year 10 students are required to do two weeks of Work Experience during the summer term.

This year the dates are 1st-12th July.

Students are encouraged to find their own placement with a company, either through contacts via friends and family, or by visiting organisations to find out if any opportunities exist. Once a placement has been arranged, the Borough Work Experience team organise Health and Safety checks and the students arrange an interview with their employer.

To avoid competition with other students also looking for placements, try to look outside the immediate area. If you are prepared to travel up to town, there will be more opportunities with larger companies, and your experience will be richer.
