Developing Skills for Life and Work

Year 10 Work Experience

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.

Our current Year 10 students will complete their work experience from Monday 22nd to Friday 26th June 2020.
