Following a fantastic work experience week last year we would like to inform you that all students in Year 10 and 12 will undertake a one week placement on Monday 24th June 2019 to Friday 28th June 2019.
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. In the past, this scheme has proved invaluable as a means of professional and personal development.
Often the most successful approach is for students to arrange their own placements, whether with family/friend, or approaching employers directly. However, employers do appreciate the Yr12 students contacting them directly.
Students can also find contact information for employers through the website Veryan Webview. Included below is a leaflet explaining how to access the website. Once logged in they will be able to access all the resources required to find their placement.
If they are successful in finding their own placement they will need to complete the enclosed 3 way work experience agreement and health forms and return them to Mr Bevin. The deadline to make selections/find own placements will be the end of April 2019.
Employers must have a valid insurance policy in place. It is vital that you discuss and support your child with the type of work experience they would like and travelling arrangements, so that they can take fast action towards selections or finding their own placement. Students must monitor the progress of their placement until they have officially secured it.
Should you have any questions, please contact Mr Bevin (Work Experience Co-ordinator) via the school number 01752 671318.
