Work Shadowing

Our work related learning curriculum includes two periods of work experience for our key stage 4 pupils. Pupils in Year 10 spend one week in the summer term on placement observing and assisting in a work place of their choice. Pupils in Year 11 spend a further week with a different employer experiencing the world of work. Placements are all fully vetted and can be arranged in a pupil’s home area to make travel easier and to provide a realistic working day.

Over the past year pupils have worked in a variety of settings including schools, leisure centres, garages, hair and beauty salons, pharmacy, retailing and a hearing impaired unit.
