Information for Pupils

Monday 16 July to Friday 20 July 2018

You are responsible for finding and arranging your own placement to cover the full work experience duration. You will decide where you would like to go and what you would like to achieve in your time there.   

The resources below, along with support from assemblies, lessons and parents/carers will help you to contact employers by letter, telephone or in person and secure a work experience placement. 

You must have permission to take part in the work experience programme by asking your parent or carer to sign and return the Parent/Carer Consent Form by Friday 19 January 2018. You will not be able to apply for placements without it.

Once you have found a placement, your employer will need to complete an Employer Placement Form confirming who they are, where you will be working, who you will be reporting to, what you will be doing and when you will be doing it. This needs to be returned to school by Wednesday 28 March 2018 at the latest so the necessary checks can take place. Your placement will not be confirmed until these checks have been completed.

The Work Experience Administrator, in A23, can help you with application forms, interviews, placement suggestions and any questions you may have. Please email [email protected] for an appointment. 

If you are unable to find a placement you will be able to access the school 'Job Board' and apply for placements that the school has secured. These placements are limited, not necessarily in your chosen field of choice and are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
