Work experience is an opportunity to find out more about the world of work. All Sixth Form students will have one day a week timetabled to go on work experience at a work placement.


With help from your teachers and family, you will find a place of work where you will go to help you experience what happens in a work place and to try it for yourself.


It is important for you to develop an awareness and understanding of what it will be like when you leave school or college and look for a job. If you know what to expect then you will be more prepared to make the right choices for your future.
