All Year 10 students have the opportunity to organise relevant work experience in the week beginning Monday 9th July 2019.
Our work experience scheme is provided by Changing Education Ltd, an established provider in school work experience. They have recently provided an App which can be used by students and parents to complete the administrative tasks in applying for a placement.
All students will be supplied with a QR code which will allow them to access the app and to help complete the registration process a useful video can be used:
Not only does the App speed up the application process but can be used by students to log their experiences during the placement, and, have the information stored away for use later in future university/college and job applications.
Why should you do work experience? The best view to take is that it will give you the skills for the workplace. When applying for jobs, outlining your work experience and the skills you have developed will place in a better position to convince employers that you have the ability to the job.
Good luck with your application, and enjoy your work experience!
