Work Experience

The highly regarded Work Experience programme runs for one week, and is open to all of our Yr10 students. It aims to give them a high quality placement, in accordance with statutory Health & Safety (H&S) regulations. An important part of the preparation for Work Experience is our ‘Mock Interview’ scheme, whereby students complete an application form and are then interviewed by professionals from local businesses and organisations. The students also complete a detailed online H&S quiz which emphasises the importance of H&S in any work place.

If you’d like to offer a work experience placement or be involved in any of our Careers related activities, please contact Mrs J Powney – 01977 601732.

Year 10 students have completed a successful Work Experience placement week in April. Students spent time with a huge variety of employers/businesses including schools and nurseries, garages, sports facilities, shops and even an animal sanctuary!

19 students spent the week at Strensall Barracks in York, to sample a taste of Army life.

We received very positive reports from employers, including:

* It has been a pleasure to have him with us this week
* She has been an absolute credit to her school, her family and herself
* He very quickly became part of the team
* She has been very helpful – we don’t want her to come back to school, we want to employ her full time!!

Well done to everyone involved!
