Developing Skills for Life and Work

Year 10 Work Experience Week

Monday 1st - Friday 5th July 2024

Year 12 Work Experience Week

Monday 8th - Friday 12th July 2024

Work Experience helps students to develop key skills which employers say young people need in the workplace. These skills include:

  • Communication
  • Problem solving
  • Social skills
  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Working with others

Learning and developing these skills builds confidence so that students can move on to the next challenge in school, university, work and life.

A work experience placement can also give students an opportunity to:

  • Find out more about an industry or sector
  • Meet new people
  • Experience life as an employee
  • Build upon existing skills and learn new skills
  • Meet course requirements
  • Use on CVs, applications and references
