Year 10 Work Experience
We were really pleased that Work Experience could go ahead once again for our Year 10 pupils, which ran from Monday 20th – Friday 24th June. Pupils did an excellent job in securing their self-placements and a big thank you to parents & carers for their support in the process. From our Year group of 178, only a few pupils needed to remain in school for our in house work experience programme.
Whilst on placement pupils were asked to complete a daily diary which included mini tasks. In these they needed to engage with employees of the company to find out what their jobs entailed and the positives and challenges of their roles. They also had to write about the skills that they had used whilst they were on placement.
We have had some excellent examples of work that our pupils have produced in their diary entries and how they have engaged with employees at their work placement. Upon their return they have completed an evaluation in their Personal Development lessons, which focused on the employability skills that they gained and their opinions of work experience. It was very pleasing to read so many positive comments.
We have received positive feedback from organisations where they carried out placements and this is a credit to our pupils representing the school in such a positive manner.
