Work experience aims to provide young people with an opportunity to expand their awareness of the world of work, increase economic understanding from outside the classroom and relate their studies to work and training. It is also an opportunity for students to gain the independent skills of searching for a job, contacting an employer and fulfilling a role within an organisation.
Students will have the ability to access a work experience database run by Work Experience Support Services. The placements on this database have been visited by the company and are willing for any student to contact them regarding a work experience placement.
“Work Experience is a valuable opportunity in helping our students to prepare for the world of work, giving them a taste of a potential career and most importantly for the student to gain the independent skills of searching for a job, contacting an employer and fulfilling a role with-in an organisation.”
