Work experience placements

​​​​​Work experience can offer a range of benefits and opportunities to young people including:

  • Gain first hand experience of working and working conditions.
  • See how people relate to one another in the workplace
  • Help make informed choices about career plans.
  • Prepare for entering the job market.

We believe that work experience should be:

  • Part of the learning entitlement for all students in maintained schools and made equally available to all, irrespective of academic ability, race or gender.
  • Seen as a means of achieving learning outcomes for students which are part of a broad, balanced and integrated curriculum.
  • Viewed as a key aspect of the schools’ work related learning programme, careers education and guidance and personal and social development programme.
  • Clearly linked to the student’s learning objectives.

How do I setup a work experience placement?

Contact your school first if you're interested in work experience.
